ABSTRACT We report four patients diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with neurological manifestations, placed in the National Hospital in the period 2010. Two patients had lupus psychosis, micro stroke secondary to antiphospholipid antibodies and encephalomyelitis. All were female. Two of them debuted the disease with neurological manifestations and two in the course of evolution of SLE. Three patients responded to treatment with methylprednisolone and cyclophosphamide pulses, with regression of neurologic symptoms. However, one of the patient was not satisfactory recovery and the symptoms persist despite treatment.

Keywords : Lupus erythematosus; neurological symptoms; Paraguay.
