Abstract

Posterior reversible encephalopathy (PRES) has been described In the literature as a clinic radiological syndrome characterized by CNS manifestations of a systemic disease of various etiology. Although its not a very common phenomenon in children, now a days its increasingly being recognized. We report a case of  9 yrs old child presented with one episode of focal seizure a day after blood transfusion while undergoing treatment for fever with anemia and hypertension. The inflammatory markers were raised without a specific etiological findings with a classical MRI picture. The patient was managed conservatively and discharged  with normal neurological parameters.

PRES is often associated with hypertension especially in adults with superimposed inflammatory pathology and having a favourable outcome if intervened optimally. Clinical suspicion and a detailed MRI study is required in pediatric patients for a timely diagnosis.
