Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disorder involving multiple organs, including the nervous system. Neuropsychiatric involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus is one of the major manifestations of the disease. Both partial and generalised seizures can occur in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. In this article, we report a seven-year-old girl with a case of systemic lupus erythematosus who initially presented with an episode of status epilepticus.
