  1. ACR criteria numbered according to Bombardier et al. [19]: 1, malar (or 'butterfly') rash; 2, discoid rash; 3, sensitivity to light, or photosensitivity; 4, oral ulcers; 5, arthritis; 6, serositis; 7, kidney disorder; 8, neurologic disorder; 9, blood abnormalities; 10, positive antiphospholipid antibody test; 11, immunologic disorder, including lupus anticoagulant, positive anti-double-stranded DNA, false-positive syphilis test, or positive anti-Smith test (such as anticardiolipin). + and - indicate cumulative presence or absence, respectively, of a particular criterion. In the leftmost column, + indicates patients with infiltrates. ACR, American College of Rheumatology; F, female, M, male; MED, minimal erythemal dose; UVB, ultraviolet B light.
