Lupus erythematosus in an old favourite drama series

cofI was watching this old favourite Japanese series made in 1999 (世纪末之诗,The Last Song), and chanced upon this oh-so-familiar name on the TV screen. Lupus! Back then I wondered what sickness was this episode referring to, it sounded like a vampire disease whereby exposure to sun can cause the little girl to faint or die. How strange is it to know that actually I was gonna get this disease fast forward 16 years later. 😅

The girl in that particular episode had serious photosensitivity issues that minor exposure could cause her lupus to flare. But I am not aware that a flare could kill someone in an hour’s time. But that was 16 years ago. Lupus could have been an extremely dangerous disease back then.

Ah, what a strange feeling.
