Question Lupus and Hep C

Can lupus give a false positive Hepatitis C result? My husband was just recently diagnosed with discoid lupus...and subsequent blood work also resulted in a positive hep C.

Lupus does cause false positives on certain tests. What they do in the case of a lupus patient with a false positive is they do a more comprehensive test that gives no false positive. If he has shown up positive, he will probably be asked to come in for a second test to make sure.
