How is the disease diagnosed?

Diagnosing lupus on the scalp is challenging for the dermatologist, as the symptoms and progression of the disease vary from person to person and often resemble other conditions.

To date, there is no specific test for diagnosing the disease. However, the doctor can reach a diagnosis through dermatological findings, biopsy, immunofluorescence, and serological markers.”
