My daugher is 13 years old and has had the following bloodwork and symptoms: Low WBC 2.8 (for over 4 months); Positive ANA 1:1280; Positive Chromatin 1.8; rashes; fatigue; aching, allergies and acne. I've been told by one doctor that she has some sort of auto immune disease, but doesn't think it's SLE because she tested negative for anti-DNA test, an anti-SM test and an anti-RNP. While another said it could possibly be SLE. I have Lupus (her mom) and have been hospitalized several times--kidneys, heart, etc., and so does several of my family members on my mothers side of the family. Her father also has a positive ANA but has arthritis.
Just wondering what you think it might be? I do have a Rheumatologist appt. scheduled for her, but it's not for 7 weeks down the road.
