Abstract

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is an acute encephalopathy characterized by headache, altered consciousness, visual symptoms and convulsions. Diagnosis is supported by Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the Brain. Here we report a case of PRES in a 24-year-old-male who showed complete recovery with the control of blood pressure. Finally Post Infectious Glomerular Nephritis (PIGN) was found to be the underlying etiology of hypertension to develop PRES.
