  i think skin lesions in SLE r related to vasculitis of small blood vessels .in other words we can say deposition of immmune complexes cuz the cause for Vasculitis n most of the lesions in SLE r due to deposition of immune complexes(e.g type III hypersensitivity Reaction).this is wat i personally feel...happens in SLE skin lesions.pls do correct me if i am wrong.open for discussion
