Homocysteine (HHcy) serum levels are increased and correlate with disease severity in patients with lupus erythematosus (LE).

 

Hcy levels were higher in patients with different forms of cutaneous LE and correlated with disease activity, therefore HHcy could be related to LE pathogenesis and might be a triggering factor in predisposed individuals. PubMed, Clin Exp Rheumatol, 01/08/2016. (Also see Causes of Lupus)
