Abstract

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare manifestation of neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Clinical and electrophysiological features of Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients with SLE are different from those in patients without SLE. There is considerable variation in the management and prognosis. We present a patient with Guillain-Barré syndrome and SLE and review the recent knowledge on the various manifestations of neuropsychiatric SLE.
