Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), also known as reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome or reversible posterior cerebral edema syndrome, is a reversible neurological condition characterized by headache, altered mental status, visual disturbances, seizures, and unconsciousness. It is a clinic-radiological entity with characteristic features on neuroimaging. We present a case of a young antenatal term patient with pre-eclampsia who had no previous history of hypertension. She underwent a cesarean section and in the post-natal period developed sudden bilateral severe vision loss without seizure because of PRES. The visual loss was reversible and improved on systemic and supportive anti-hypertensive patient.
