ABSTRACT

We report a rare case of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) presenting with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome(PRES). A 31-year-old female presented with six episodes of generalized tonic-clonic convulsions. She recovered very well with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive therapy. SLE is a heterogenous, inflammatory, multisystem autoimmune disease of multiorgan involvement in which antinuclear antibodies appear in serum often years before clinical symptoms. Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a clinicoradiological entity that can be missed by many clinicians. A high index of suspicion should alarm a clinician to think of PRES when patients present with seizures, altered mental status, headaches and visual disturbances. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are therefore mandatory for full recovery of abnormalities.

Keywords: Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome(PRES), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
