    00:01 Now remember our diagnostic criteria for lupus.

    00:04 There are an extensive number of potential manifestations that we might see with lupus.

    00:08 It would be really rare for a patient to exclusively have this malar rash with nothing else going on.

    00:14 For the sake of review, recall that our diagnostic criteria include this 4-Skin-RASHNIA mnemonic in which we're looking for at least 4 of those systems involved in order to consider the diagnosis of lupus.

    00:27 Now, while our patient may have something that resembles this classic butterfly rash of systemic lupus erythematosus, the rash typically spares the nasolabial fold and really should be accompanied by some other symptoms.

    00:40 So we'll leave that one on our list but I think it is lesser down on our differential.
