Direct immunofluroscence was evaluated in 16 patients with DLE including 1 case of lupus profundus and 4 with disseminated DLE. A BMZ band with multiple immunoreactants was demonstrated in lesional skin in 14 patients (87.5%), while 2 had only single immunoreactants. C3 and lgM were the commonest reactants followed by lgG, lgA and fibrinogen. A perifollicular prominence was seen in several patients. Four patients showed a band in uninvolved skin. This may indicate a potential to develop SLE. ANA was also positive in 5 patients but ds DNS was negative.
