Possibly: There does seem to be an association between lupus and pseudotumor cerebri. But the association may be spurious and related to cerebral venous thrombosis (lupus is often associated with hypercoaguability) or side effects of corticosteroids which are used sometimes to treat lupus.

Yes it can: It can occur with the lupus and it can occur with therapy like steroids.
