A Case of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus With Spontaneous Intracranial Epidural Hematoma

Rudrajit Paul, Ramtanu Bandyopadhyay, Sukamal Santra, Tushar Kanti Patra


         Spontaneous intracranial epidural hematoma is a rare clinical entity.  Its association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is even rarer. We here report the case of a young Indian female presenting with prolonged headache associated with vomiting and new onset abnormal behavior. When the patient was diagnosed as SLE by standard criteria and the blood count revealed thrombocytopenia, she was investigated with CT brain scan which revealed an epidural hematoma. This is the second reported case of spontaneous intracranial epidural hematoma in an SLE patient.
