    Abstract

    All 79 patients who attended a University Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Clinic over a 6 month period were assessed using the Clinical Interview Schedule for psychiatric disorder. Using the ICD-9 Classification, 40 were found to have psychiatric disorder, 26 having depressive neurosis, six anxiety neurosis, five endogenous depression and three dementia. The group with psychiatric disorder had significantly poor family support as well as lack of a confidant compared to the group without psychiatric disorder (P < 0.01). There was no difference between the group with psychiatric disorder and those without psychiatric disorder in terms of age, duration of illness, ethnicity and severity of SLE. Psychiatric disorder is common affecting more than half the subjects and depression was the most frequent diagnosis.
