Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of neonatal lupus erythematosus with cutaneous and neurological features is reported. At 5 years of age, the patient retains residual telangiectatic lesions over the trunk and face and has mild spastic diplegia, originally detected at the age of 1 year. Persistent telangiectasia is now a recognized feature of neonatal lupus erythematosus. The pathogenesis of the neurological deficit is uncertain.
