Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is a clinic‐neuroradiologic disease characterized by variable associations of neurological symptoms. The brain imaging abnormalities are often symmetric and predominate in the posterior white matter. PRES can develop in association with a vast array of conditions including hypertensive encephalopathy, eclampsia, and the use of cytotoxic and immunosuppressant drugs. Only few cases in the literature show an association between PRES and acute pancreatitis. We report a case of a 61 yo woman presenting PRES after Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography related pancreatitis.

Abstract

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is a clinic‐neuroradiologic disease characterized by variable associations of neurological symptoms. The brain imaging abnormalities are often symmetric and predominate in the posterior white matter. PRES can develop in association with a vast array of conditions including hypertensive encephalopathy, eclampsia, and the use of cytotoxic and immunosuppressant drugs. Only few cases in the literature show an association between PRES and acute pancreatitis. We report a case of a 61 yo woman presenting PRES after Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography related pancreatitis.
