Neuropsychiatric manifestations constitute typical, although often elusive, hallmarks of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Despite significant achievements in the definition of pragmatic algorithms for the attribution of major neuropsychiatric events to SLE and constant technical improvements in the accuracy and informativeness of imaging and laboratory diagnostic tools, the borders of neurological morbidity in SLE are still ill-defined, and neuropsychiatric SLE (NPSLE) management remains challenging. There is also limited knowledge about the pathophysiological events supporting the onset and persistence of neuropsychiatric manifestations in SLE. This Special Issue aims to collect novel evidence, perspectives, and/or comprehensive reviews of existing data on innovations in the field of NPSLE pathophysiology, diagnostics, and treatment. By doing so, this project also aims to promote the integration of multidisciplinary expertise, possibly contributing to accelerating the development of novel strategies for patient monitoring and treatment.
