Case Report: Multiple Sclerosis and Sle Revisited

The distinction between Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and neurological Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) can sometimes be difficult especially in the early stages. The occasional patient may have both diseases. MS, SLE and other auto-immune disorders may run in the same family. We describe a young Asian woman who had clinical and serological features of both diseases and whose mother has scleroderma.

Keywords: Multiple sclerosis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Familial auto-immune diseases.
