ABSTRACT Comorbidities make determining a patient's optimal treatment plan substantially more difficult. This article describes lupus cerebritis, a neuropsychiatric presentation of systemic lupus erythematosus, in a patient with a risk for hematologic malignancies. The patient's primary care team had to weigh the benefit versus potential harm of various therapies to find the best treatment.

Morgan Walgren practices at Nebraska Medicine Immediate Care Clinics and is a medical student at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, both in Omaha, Neb. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
