My 15 year old son was just given a probable lupus diagnosis! He has 2 or 3 of 11 criteria (positive ANA and anti-DNA and low complements. He had been experiencing arthritis in his fingers, but has no symptoms now. The symptoms only were there about 3 weeks and he feels fine now so rheumy is not treating him. I was stunned with the possible diagnosis in a 15 year old boy. We are repeating tests in 3 months.He had a virus so I am hoping maybe it ws just reactive. Does anyone have experience with lupus in a teen or lupus in boys. Thanks for your help. Ellen.
