Lupus or SLE can lead to variety of complications.

It can effect virtual every major organ system of the body but the effect on kidneys and brain are very significant. It can cause of variety of brain syndrome ranging from mild cognitive dysfunction to more severe one like stroke and vasculitis. Same goes for kidneys so if you have lupus I would strongly recommend to start treatment asap . Here is a link where you can find some details
