Lupus Clinic

The UCSF Lupus Clinic focuses on evaluating and treating systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), particularly moderate to severe forms. Our providers have expertise in lupus nephritis and other organ-threatening manifestations of SLE. We work closely with dermatologists, nephrologists and other specialists to collaboratively manage all aspects of this complex disease.

Because lupus is a chronic condition, we’re also devoted to educating patients and their families about the disease. Our clinic is one of 22 national centers participating in the Lupus Clinical Trials Consortium, collecting information on lupus for the largest database of its kind. UCSF providers are actively investigating new treatments for lupus, and patients have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials.

The Lupus Clinic is located within the Rheumatology Clinic.
