The purpose of this study is to carry out bibliometric analysis and visualization of published literatures, and identify current research hotspots and future research trends in this field. Literature was retrieved from the Web Of Science database from 1999 to 2022. The literature was analyzed and visualized using Citespace 6.1.R6, VOSviewer 1.6.18, and Microsoft Excel 2019.

The keyword burst showed the earliest and longest burst was antiphospholipid antibody, validation/risk/rituximab/safety is the current research hotspot. The article with the highest number of citations was Hochberg MC 1997 published in Arthritis Rheum. This study provides valuable information summary for the field of LN in children, which is helpful to strengthen the cooperation among countries, institutions and authors, and promote the research in the field of LN in children.
