The exact cause of lupus is not
known. Experts believe that some people are born with certain
genes that affect how the immune system works. These people are more likely to get lupus. Then a number of other things can trigger
lupus attacks. These include certain medicines, certain chemicals, tobacco smoke, certain infections, and sunlight. Although these things can trigger
lupus, they may affect one person but not another person.
