Sabarish Mahalingam, P. Z. Wadia, Mithram Wadia.

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease characterized by multisystemic involvement which may affect every organ in the body without any specificity. Neuropsychiatric Systemic Lupus involvement [NPSLE] is a complex neurological disorder characterized by neuropsychological dysfunction may range from mild diffuse to acute life threatening events. In the pathology of Neuropsychiatric lupus, vasculopathy due to infarcts and hemorrhages are often observed, whereas vasculitis is rare. Neuropsychiatric symptoms often occur in the first year, but are rarely the presenting symptoms of the disease. We reported a case of Neuropsychiatric Lupus in a twenty years aged female presenting with convulsion and blurring of vision which is primarily due to vasculitis.

Key words: Systemic lupus erythematosus, Neuropsychiatric lupus, CNS vasculitis.
