SLE is an autoimmune disease with a diverse spectrum, rnaging from discoid LE to systemic LE
The real cause of SLE is not yet clear, but failure in apotposis of self-destructive T cells may be the culprit.
I have witness a case of lupus profundus and later evolved to SLE.
About the tretment, immunosuppressive treatment ( steroid ) will be first choice, although some pilotal experimental treatments are available.
Good luck to your wife.
