Your Child's Care Begins Here

Although the cause of lupus is unknown, it usually occurs in kids with genetic susceptibility and exposed to environmental triggers, such as ultra-violet radiation. Most people with lupus are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 44, though symptoms and diagnosis may occur much earlier. 

There currently isn't a cure for lupus, but the symptoms can be controlled. Our pediatric rheumatologists will work with you and other specialists on a plan to prevent flare-ups in your child.
