Decreased diffusion capacity on lung function testing in asymptomatic patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) does not predict future lung disease.

 

A finding of low diffusion capacity in asymptomatic patients with SLE, with or without antiphospholipid syndrome, does not necessarily require further evaluation and imaging and may improve spontaneously over time. PubMed, Lupus, 01/16/2015. (Also see: Symptoms and Complications of Lupus)
