Abstract
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an inflammatory disease of unknown cause, characterized biologically by producing multiple autoantibodies, the most characteristics are directed against some kernel components such as deoxyribonucleic acid and native nucleosomes. Neurological manifestations are frequent and polymorphous. They are dominated by central attacks, while peripheral attacks are rarer. We report the case of LS, 34 years old, female, Senegalese, divorced, and followed for years for a SLE, living in Dakar, hospitalized in October 2016 at the Neurological Clinic of FANN National Teaching Hospital, Dakar-Senegal for a demyelinating polyneuropathy complicating Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). An electro neuro myogram showed elongation of distal latencies in the lower limbs, lengthening of F waves in the lower limbs, and decreased conduction velocity in the lower limbs. The search for native anti-DNA antibodies was positive. The outcome was fatal with one death on day 41 of his hospitalization.
