The fever and central nervous system manifestations of newly diagnosed SLE are mostly due to disease activity. Treated SLE should not ignore infection and adverse drug reactions. Due to the use of hormones and other immunosuppressants, the body's resistance is low. SLE patients are prone to bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections. Routine, biochemical, and etiological examination of the cerebrospinal fluid can help rule out central nervous system infection. Various drugs used in the treatment of SLE, such as glucocorticoids, antimalarials, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cytotoxic drugs, etc., can cause central nervous system toxic effects, such as central nervous system symptoms during drug treatment, Be careful to distinguish.
