Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES)

Here is a free full text review.

From the review:

Characteristic clinical manifestations include non-localized headache unresponsive to analgesics, altered mental status, visual disturbances and seizures [1, 2]. RPLS is frequently associated with acute hypertension, preeclampsia or eclampsia, sepsis, renal failure, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, hypercalcemia, hypomagnesium, autoimmune diseases, cytotoxic therapies and immunosuppressants [2].
