Aims and objectives: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that frequently manifests with involvement of the central nervous system. Various types of neuropsychiatric SLE brain lesions have been reported  with a  wide spectrum of radiological manifetations  The aim of our study is t[...]

Methods and materials: We identified 177 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (with, or without antiphospholipid syndrome). CT or MR images of the first episode of active NPSLE in 55 patients were retrospectively reviewed. All patients fulfilled the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 1982 revised criteria for th[...]

Results: => Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the gold standard for studying the brain in SLE. => The role of other imaging modalities such as computer tomography (CT) is essentially to rule out acute complications such as hemorrhage or large infarcts, or to assess differential diagnoses .   =&g[...]

Conclusion: SLE is not well described in the radiology literature, even though it is encountered in every radiology subspecialty because of its multisystem involvement and the wide age range of affected patients.   It is important for radiologists to understand the pathophysiologic features of SLE and[...]
