Abstract

We report two cases of systemic lupus erythematosus with central nervous system involvement. Both cases presented as posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, which were depicted as vasogenic edema predominantly within the territories of the posterior circulation. The second patient suffered from additional subarachnoid hemorrhage a few days later. The incidence, imaging features, and mechanisms of the diseases are discussed.
