  Abstract :

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is defined as a linic-pathological disorder characterized by a myriad of symptoms including altered mental status , headaches, blurring of vision and seizure, because of the involvement of the occipital and/or parietal lobes of the brain. Eclampsia is known to be the commonest etiological factors behind PRES. This is a review of literature guided clinic-radiological findings which aid in the early diagnosis and management of PRES and thereby reduce morbidities and complications related to the same.
