The relationship of HUV to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is complex with many overlapping features (manifestations of HUV are present in 10% of SLE patients and 50% of patients with HUV will later be diagnosed as having SLE). Other syndromes such as mixed cryoglobulinemia, Muckle-Wells syndrome, Cogan syndrome and Schnitzler syndrome should be excluded (see these terms).
