Collagen vascular disease (CVD) is an umbrella term for a group of disorders, like lupus, that affect your connective tissues — ligaments, tendons, cartilage. Lupus and other CVDs are autoimmune diseases, which mean that they make your immune system mistakenly attack your body’s healthy tissues. They also affect collagen, the protein responsible for keeping your joints healthy and your skin nice and taut.
Certain CVDs, like discoid lupus erythematosus, or DLE, can cause persistent skin lesions, swollen rashes, changes in pigmentation, and scarring. These rashes can be small and harmless or extensive and painful. They are usually also accompanied by other symptoms, like fatigue, muscle aches, and joint pain.
