Abstract

POSTPARTUM POSTERIOR REVERSIBLE ENCEPHALOPATHY SYNDROME (PRES): A CASE REPORT AND A BRIEF REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Dr. Vajed Mogal*, Dr. V.B.Shaikh, Dr. Ajith Kurian, Dr. Vishal Dalvi

ABSTRACT

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) refers to a clinico-radiologic entity with characteristic features on neuroimaging and nonspecific symptoms comprising headache, confusion, visual disturbances and seizures. The radiological findings in PRES are thought to be due to vasogenic edema, predominantly in the posterior cerebral hemispheres and are reversible with appropriate management.We report a case of PRES diagnosed by MRI scan following uneventful caesarean section in previously normotensive patients who were succesfully treated with anticonvulsants and supportive treatment. This condition is important to recognize and needs to be treated promptly to prevent morbidity and mortality in pregnancy and postpartum.

Keywords: PRES, Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome, Postpartum.
