Further, involvement appears to be independent of the presence or absence of neuropsychiatric symptoms. However, these findings have largely been elucidated in adults with an overall paucity of data regarding white-matter micro-architectural changes in the pediatric SLE population. The purpose of this study is to objectively identify the presence of white-matter micro-architectural changes in pediatric patients with SLE compared to age-matched healthy controls. Read More
