I know someone diagnosed with lupus due to faulty silicone injections for breast enlargement. She got quite ill and it took several operations for them to get all the silcone out. Once it was removed, her immune system did do better and her health drastically improved. She has not had futher episodes. Whether this should have been called lupus, I don't know. Her ANA was elevated and her body was attacking itself as it was trying so hard to attack and remove the silicone. I have heard stries of people getting "lupus" from silicone breast implants/injections that does go away when the silicone is removed. In medical assistant training that and DIL were the only circumstances we were taught that lupus was "cured".
