This article presents abstracts of papers presented at the proceedings of the Association of British Neurologists and the British Neuropsychiatry Association, Royal College of Physicians, in London, England on October 2-4, 2002. The present syndromic variants of frontotemporal lobar degeneration, frontotemporal dementia, progressive non-fluent aphasia, semantic dementia, reflect focal pathological damage to the frontal lobes or to the left temporal lobe. This study aims to identify the clinical correlates arising from focal degeneration of the right temporal lobe. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic multisystem disease of uncertain aetiology. Neuropsychiatric involvement occurs in about 50% of patients and carries a poor prognosis.

    Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and lymphoma are disease entities that often have similar presenting signs and symptoms that can complicate or delay definitive diagnosis. 2-Deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) has become a valuable tool in the diagnosis,...

    Risk of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is higher in people of west African descent than in Europeans. The objective of this study was to distinguish between genetic and environmental explanations for this ethnic difference by examining the relationship of disease risk to individual admixture...
