Özet

Limbic Encephalitis (LE) is a syndrome manifesting with seizures and delusions, progressive memory loss, and behavioral abnormalities lasting for weeks. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune connective tissue disease that can affect any part of the body. Central nervous system (CNS) involvement has been reported in 14-75% of SLE cases. We present the clinical, immunological, and radiological features of a case of LE occurring in association with SLE.
