Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) refers to a clinico-radiologic entity with characteristic features on neuroimaging and non-specific symptoms comprising headache, confusion, visual disturbances and seizures. The lesions in PRES are thought to be due to vasogenic oedema. Here we are reporting a postpartum case of 18 year old primi with PIH who presented to our emergency department with detorioration of consciousness, headache and respiratory distress. Patient also had an episode of GTCS (Generalised Tonic Clonic Seizure) on admission. However, on the basis of MRI finding PRES was diagnosed and treated successfully in critical Care. Due to timely intervention patient had recovered without any neurological deficit.
