Caring for Children with Lupus

Lupus is a complex autoimmune, rheumatic disease with symptoms that can range from mild to severe, affect any part of the body and seriously challenge lupus patients and their families.

The healthcare team at the Lupus Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center understands lupus and deals with it daily. We offer treatment and help in managing symptoms while leading research efforts to find better treatments and improve the lives of our patients.

Continuum of Care

Lupus is most likely to develop between the ages of 12 and 44. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent organ damage later in life. While we are a pediatric hospital, we continue to treat lupus patients as they become young adults. We have a transition program to help older patients find age-appropriate care in their communities.
