Explosive onset of SLE in white male in capital of Cherokee Nation

Caleb S. Alexander, Prashant Kaushik.

Abstract
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a major autoimmune rheumatologic condition that can cause severe life threatening complications. While it afflicts all ages, sexes, races and ethnicities, it overwhelmingly affects more females and non-white males. Due to these demographics, it is important to highlight this case of an explosive onset of SLE in a young, white male from a unique location in the USA. A 19-year old, white male first had symptoms following a change to carnivore diet, increase in exercise and prolonged sun exposure. Over the first few months, a rash that had started on his face and was originally thought to be a sunburn spread across the majority of his body. He then developed ascending joint pains and a loss of appetite. Over the course of about 6 months, he had gone from a relatively healthy, but overweight, teenager to requiring hospitalization for severe body pains and rash, photophobia, hyperacusis, lack of an appetite and nearly 30-percent loss of body weight loss. Since disease identification and receiving treatment, the symptoms have begun improving and he is resuming normal daily activities.
