Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disorder with variable disease courses and multiple clinical manifestations [1]. The etiology of SLE is not clear, but different environmental (ultraviolet [UV] light, infections, drugs), genetic, and hormonal factors all seem to be involved [1]. Positive family history and history of having other autoimmune illnesses are considered high-risk factors for SLE, but most SLE cases are scattered [1]. The 2019 EULAR/ACR classification criteria for SLE include positive ANA at least once as a mandatory entry criterion; followed by additive weighted standards grouped in seven clinical (constitutional, hematological, neuropsychiatric, serosal, musculoskeletal, renal, mucocutaneous ) and three immunological (antiphospholipid antibodies, complement proteins, SLE-specific antibodies) domains, and weighted from 2 to 10, and patients accumulating ≥10 points are classified to have SLE [2]. Herein, we report this case of neuropsychiatric lupus as it is uncommon and is a severe form of SLE.
