Abstract

Proteinuria is a major feature of renal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and therapeutic adjustments are often made on the basis of this proteinuria. Quantitation of proteinuria has usually required the use of a 24-hour urine collection. The authors report the results of quantitating proteinuria by using a ratio of protein to creatinine concentration in a random, spot urine collection.
