Most patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have, during their illness, respiratory reached the most frequent is the pleurisy (one of the eleven diagnostic criteria recognized by the American Rheumatism Association). The respiratory events that found in the LED cover both the lung parenchyma as the pleura, the pulmonary vasculature, airways and respiratory muscles, and this alone or simultaneously. They may precede other manifestations of the LED or occur at any time during the disease. The clinical spectrum ranges from asymptomatic forms to attacks sometimes fatal. We must keep in mind that a pneumonia developing in a patient with lupus should mention first a trivial or opportunistic infection under a immunosuppressive treatment. This aspect will not be discussed in this manual, as well as pneumonia of drug.
