Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with glomerulonephritis occurred in a patient with a long-standing neuronal storage disease and myoclonus. Intravenously administered diazepam was useful in controlling the myoclonus to permit a renal biopsy. The exact relationship between the patient's underlying illness and the development of SLE remains unknown.
