Example Case Study from Textbook:
Sara, a 51-year-old woman, was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. She had made an appointment to see her physician because she was experiencing chronic low fever, muscle pain, and joint pain. Her physician noted a butterfly-shaped rash on Saraâ€™s face and ordered follow-up tests. Laboratory results revealed a positive antinuclear antibodies test, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Follow-up anti-double-strand DNA and anti-Sm antibody tests were positive. What is the condition? What are your clues?
