Abstract

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a clinical entity characterized by headache, altered mental functioning, seizures and loss of vision associated with white matter changes predominantly present in the posterior cerebral lobe.1
Hereby I am reporting a 23 year old primigravida with 8 months of amenorrhoea who was a K/C/O Sickle cell disease who developed eclampsia, underwent Caesarean for the same and developed PRES syndrome post op. She was treated with antihypertensives and antiepileptics and gradually improved over time. Early diagnosis and prompt intervention stays the mainstay of this syndrome, because once the irreversible changes set it, complete resolution to normal is not possible.

Keywords: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome, Postpartum, Sickle cell disease, Pregnancy.
