Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) or reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome was first described by Hinchey, in 1996, as a reversible syndrome manifested with an acute headache, consciousness impairment, seizures, and visual deficits, associated with white matter changes predominately affecting the posterior parietal and occipital lobes of the brain but also involving the brainstem, cerebellum, and other cerebral areas [1-3].
