In five cases of chronic discoid lupus erythematosus which began in childhood and lasted into adulthood no systemic disease was present, and long follow-up confirmed the cutaneous localization of the disease. This syndrome in children is comparable to the continuing, recurrent nature of chronic discoid lupus erythematosus in adults.
