Abstract

Rheumatological diseases can involve the central and the peripheral nervous system in many ways. Every structure - the brain, meninges, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves - can be affected. Early recognition of neurological abnormality can help achieving diagnosis of the underlying condition and prevent permanent sensorimotor or cognitive function loss. This review focuses on the clinical presentation of the neurological involvement in rheumatological diseases.
