Abstract

The psychiatric manifestations of three patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and neuropathic dysautonomic processes are described. All patients had a severe form of SLE with neurological, renal, articular, pulmonary or haematological manifestations. All three have two types of psychiatric manifestations: (1) a chronic and progressive depression and (2) a complex dissociative disorder during the acute episodes of postural hypotension. A provocative test with SPECT with 99mTc-HmPAO to be done during the episode of orthostatic hypotension may contribute to clinical assessment of complex changes in cerebral regional perfusion.
