Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) with Postpartum Eclampsia: A Case Report

Dr Ferhana Selina, MBBS, MD
Department of Anesthesiology Square Hospitals Ltd. Dhaka, Bangladesh

Abstract
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome is a reversible syndrome characterized by headache, seizures, altered mentation, and loss of vision associated with white matter changes on imaging. We report here a 22 year-old lady four days postpartum, presenting with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. She was treated successfully with antihypertensives, anticonvulsant and showed dramatic improvement. This condition is important to recognize and needs to be treated promptly to prevent morbidity and mortality in pregnancy and postpartum.

Key Words: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, postpartum, white matter changes on imaging.
