Abstract: Neuropsychiatric manifestations are commonly observed in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients; however, cerebellar involvement has rarely been reported. In the presence of acute cerebellar ataxia, etiologies related (focal edema and ischemia) and not related (infections, malignancy and paraneoplastic syndromes) to lupus have to be considered and they imply different treatment strategies. We report the clinical and radiological features of 3 SLE patients who presented with acute cerebellar ataxia. A review of the literature was performed by documenting cases of cerebellar ataxia in SLE and the importance of neuroimaging in the evaluation of these patients.
