Less common neurologic syndromes presenting in the patient known to have SLE include movement disorders (chorea, ataxia, parkinsonism), pseudotumor cerebri, and venous sinus thrombosis. Movement disorders were not included in the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria. Chorea has been seen in fewer 4% of patients. [21]

Acute aseptic meningitis is rarely described in association with NSAID therapy, but this condition must be differentiated from infectious etiologies, especially in immunosuppressed patients.
