AbstractCerebellar vasculopathy is an uncommon but clinically important neuropsychiatric syndrome of systemic lupus erythematosus (NP-SLE) for its ominous outcome and need for prompt interventions. We described a young Chinese lady with systemic lupus erythematosus and normal tension glaucoma, who had sudden headache, nausea and vomiting coupled with rapid neurological deterioration leading to comatose status. Diagnosis of lupus cerebellar vasculopathy was made and intense immunosuppressive therapy consisting of prednisolone and cyclophosphamide was commenced. Clinical condition was salvaged with marked improvement of both sensorium and general well-being.
