The clinical manifestations of nervous system involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (neuropsychiatric SLE [NPSLE]) are highly diverse, and their etiology is incompletely understood. The aim of this study was to provide an inventory of abnormalities on conventional brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in NPSLE and to interpret the findings in relation to possible underlying pathogenetic mechanisms.
