Abstract: 10 children diagnosed with SLE on the basis of American College of Rheumatology who came with wide ranges of symptoms including Anaemia, Pyrexia of unknown origin, meningitis and convulsions were taken and Time of first symptom, time of first hospital visit, time of diagnosis and outcome of the disease were noted in data entry sheet along with age, presenting symptom and the disease outcome were noted. For analysing the severity, we numerated the outcome to 0 - 5, 1 being management on OPD basis, 2 being ward admission, 3 being requiring IV medications, 4 requiring intensive care and 5 being death. 3 out of 10 children succumbed and were attributed to have late diagnosis, the rest were diagnosed earlier and had better outcome
