Abstract

We describe a rare case of severe neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus with cerebral atrophy and multiple paraventricular, basal ganglia, cortex, cerebral white matter, and cerebellum calcifications detected on cerebral CT. These calcifications are probably secondary to necrosis focus of repeated episodes of vessels inflammation.
