Answer

Among the neurologic manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the most common are the organic encephalopathies (35-75% of case series), which basically comprise all potential variations of acute confusion, lethargy, or coma; chronic dementias; depression, mania, or other affective disturbances; or psychosis.
