Keywords:PRES, Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome, Postpartum Hypertension
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) refers to a clinicoradiologic 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 4 cases of PRES diagnosed by MRI scan following uneventful caesarean section in previously normotensive patients who were succesfully treated with antihypertensives, anticonvulsants and supportive treatment.
