Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. May-Jun 2011;77(3):264-75. doi: 10.4103/0378-6323.79695.

For an easy grasp over this topic, we have discussed the various phenomena under three broad categories, like (a) clinical--Meyerson, Meirowsky, pathergy, Renbok, (b) laboratory--LE cell, prozone and (c) histopathology--Splendore-Hoeppli.
