Abstract: Neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus encompasses neurological syndromes of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous system and a variety of psychiatric syndromes. Neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus presenting as catatonia is uncommon, and treatment of this condition is not well defined. Here we describe a case of neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus with catatonia and our treatment approach focusing on electroconvulsive therapy in conjunction with cyclophosphamide. We also discuss the pathophysiological underpinnings of the condition and the basis for treatment. Copyright © 2010 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
