A 21-year-old woman had pseudotumor cerebri as a major manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus. Recognition of this rare association precluded the performance of hazardous neuroradiologic procedures. Treatment with systemic steroids produced a dramatic resolution of all symptoms and signs, including the papilledema. (JAMA 228:197-200, 1974)
