Abstract

A case of malignant hypertension in patient with hypertensive crisis complicated by hypertensive encephalopathy and
posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. The reason for this state was a systemic disease — lupus erythematosus
extending with the involvement of central nervous system, kidneys, lungs, heart (Libman-Sacks disease) and antiphospholipid syndrome. In this article difficulties in the treatment of the underlying disease, malignant hypertension, dyslipidemia, and treatment of organ damage and prevention of further disease progression were described.
