Central nervous system (CNS) involvement in patients of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) spans a wide spectrum of neurological and psychiatric features. In the absence of a diagnostic gold standard for neuropsychiatric lupus a range of investigations are employed to support the clinical diagnosis. New imaging techniques are available to assist the diagnosis and monitoring of the disease course. MRI findings correlate well with CNS manifestations in SLE and when there is a high suspicion of CNS involvement, MRI may be useful in predicting CNS manifestations.
