Answer

Consultation with the following specialists may be needed:

  • Dermatologist: Skin biopsy is evaluated by a dermatologist/dermatopathologist to confirm the diagnosis.

  • Rheumatologist: Consult a rheumatologist when SLE is suspected or if the patient has the hypocomplementemic variant with systemic symptoms.

  • Allergist/immunologist
