    Which type of antibody commonly causes Lupus? 

    • A.

      Antinuclear antibody (ANA)

    • B.

      T cell

    • C.

      IgW

    • D.

      IgG

    Correct Answer
    A. Antinuclear antibody (ANA)
    Explanation
    Antinuclear antibodies (ANA) are commonly associated with Lupus, an autoimmune disease. ANA are antibodies that target the cell nucleus, causing inflammation and damage to tissues and organs. Lupus is characterized by the production of autoantibodies, including ANA, which mistakenly attack the body's own cells and tissues. This immune response leads to inflammation and a range of symptoms, such as joint pain, fatigue, skin rashes, and organ damage. Therefore, ANA is the correct answer as it is directly linked to the development and progression of Lupus.

    Which type of Lupus commonly affects the skin? 

    • A.

      Systemic lupus erythematosus

    • B.

      Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus

    • C.

      Discoid lupus erythematosus

    • D.

      Drug-induced lupus

    Correct Answer
    C. Discoid lupus erythematosus
    Explanation
    Discoid lupus erythematosus commonly affects the skin. It is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects the skin, causing inflammation and the development of disc-shaped lesions. Unlike systemic lupus erythematosus, which can affect multiple organs and systems in the body, discoid lupus erythematosus is usually limited to the skin.

  • 4. 

    Which amongst the following is a drug that can induce lupus inflammation? 

    • A.

      Viagra

    • B.

      Procainamide

    • C.

      Ayahuasca

    • D.

      Cyclobenzaprine

    Correct Answer
    B. Procainamide
    Explanation
    Procainamide is a drug that can induce lupus inflammation. It is an antiarrhythmic medication used to treat certain types of irregular heartbeats. However, it has been known to cause drug-induced lupus, a condition characterized by symptoms similar to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This includes joint pain, fever, rash, and fatigue. The mechanism by which procainamide triggers lupus is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve an autoimmune response. Patients taking procainamide should be closely monitored for any signs or symptoms of lupus, and the drug may need to be discontinued if lupus-like symptoms develop.

    Which disease can often accompany neonatal Lupus?  

    • A.

      Chronic Focal Encephalitis

    • B.

      Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome

    • C.

      Stoneman Syndrome

    • D.

      Sjögren’s syndrome

    Correct Answer
    D. Sjögren’s syndrome
    Explanation
    Sjögren's syndrome can often accompany neonatal Lupus. Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that affects the body's moisture-producing glands, leading to symptoms such as dry eyes and dry mouth. It is characterized by the presence of autoantibodies, including anti-Ro and anti-La antibodies, which are also found in neonatal Lupus. Neonatal Lupus is a rare condition that can occur in infants born to mothers with autoimmune diseases, such as Sjögren's syndrome, and is characterized by a rash, liver problems, and sometimes heart abnormalities. Therefore, Sjögren's syndrome is a common disease that can be associated with neonatal Lupus.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Lupus can be triggered by various factors including sunlight, infections, and medications. Sunlight exposure can cause skin rashes and flare-ups in individuals with lupus. Infections, such as viral or bacterial infections, can lead to lupus flares and worsen the symptoms. Certain medications, such as antibiotics and antiseizure drugs, can also trigger lupus in some individuals. Therefore, all of the options mentioned - sunlight, infections, and medications - can potentially trigger lupus.

      Stomach

    Correct Answer
    A. Kidneys
    Explanation
    Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various organs in the body. One of the most commonly affected organs is the kidneys. Lupus nephritis, a condition where the immune system attacks the kidneys, is a common complication of lupus. It can lead to inflammation, damage, and eventually kidney failure if left untreated. Therefore, the correct answer is kidneys.

    Explanation
    Lupus cannot be treated with surgery or radiation therapy, as they are not effective in managing the symptoms of the disease. However, medications are commonly used to treat Lupus. These medications can help control inflammation, reduce pain, and suppress the immune system to prevent further damage to organs. Different types of medications may be prescribed depending on the severity of the symptoms and the organs affected. Therefore, medications are the most appropriate and effective treatment option for Lupus.

    B. Systemic lupus erythematosus
    Explanation
    Systemic lupus erythematosus is the most severe type of Lupus. It is an autoimmune disease that can affect multiple organs and systems in the body, including the skin, joints, kidneys, heart, and brain. It is characterized by periods of flare-ups and remission, and can cause a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, and organ damage. Unlike other types of Lupus, systemic lupus erythematosus can be life-threatening if not properly managed and treated.
