This article focuses on two patients with psychiatric symptoms arising from systemic lupus erythematosus (sle). Affective and psychotic symptoms frequently occur in sle, often in combination with cognitive disturbances, and can be a first manifestation of the disorder. The diagnosis and treatment of a possible case of neuropsychiatric sle should preferably take place in a multidisciplinary setting.
