Dr. J Mirudula Josena | Dr. Abinaya Kuberan | Dr. Soundarya S [4] | Dr. Jayakar Thomas [6]


Abstract: Tumid lupus erythematosus, (TLE) is a rare type of Lupus erythematosus. It is currently considered as a subtype of Cutaneous lupus erythematosus. TLE differs from other variants of CLE as its association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is rare. TLE classification and exact features remains a topic of debate. The common differentials based on the clinical and/or histopathological features include Lymphocytic infiltrate of Jessner, Subacute Cutaneous lupus erythematosus, polymorphous light eruption, granuloma faciale, pseudo lymphoma/lymphocytoma cutis of the skin. In this article, we present a case report of Tumid Lupus Erythematosus (TLE) and review the literature to differentiate it from the above - mentioned differentials.
