Drug-induced lupus. Antibodies to ds-DNA are a rare finding and would tend to favour a diagnosis of idiopathic systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). They have been associated with the use of tumour necrosis factor inhibitors (ant-TNF) and minocycline. Aguirre Zamorano MA. (PubMed) Med Clin (Barc). 2010 Jun 19;135(3):124-129.
