  • Longitudinal myelitis is an uncommon complication of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We describe an unusual case of longitudinal myelitis and ischemic stroke in the presence of homozygous prothrombin G20210A, heterozygous MTHFR 677T mutations and the absence of antiphospholipid antibodies in a young woman with SLE.
