The natural history of renal involvement in lupus erythematosus has been surveyed, emphasizing its frequent appearance in the course of the systemic malady, with predilection for younger individuals. The pathology�both on light and electron microscopy�has been briefly described. The clinical features of the renal involvement, with emphasis on its ominous prognostic significance, have been outlined. Its evolution leading to a nephrotic syndrome and/or to severe renal insufficiency has been elucidated. Therapy, with emphasis, on steroids, has been briefly outlined.
