Özet

Background: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), is characterized by headache, lethargy, visual complaints and epileptic seizures. Brain imaging findings include abnormalities of the white matter and the grey matter. The diagnosis currently relies on clinical manifestations and typical neuroimaging findings. Different pathophysiological factors can play role in the disease process. The purpose of this study is to review causes, clinical aspects, imaging-laboratory findings and prognosis in patients diagnosed with PRES. Method: Patients who showed clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings consistent with PRES between January 2011 and December 2014 were included in the study. Patient data were collected retrospectively from hospital records.
