Synopsis: 
Systemic lupus erythematosus is common in black females of African descent. The aetiopathogenesis may be linked to genetic, environmental and hormonal factors but racial admixture may also have a role in West Indians. The study describes an unusual clustering in the 6th to 8th generations of a family that lived in the Cayman Islands.
