Özet

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a rare but if diagnosed late an irreversible disease. The majority of the patients present with severe hypertension, and effective blood pressure control is the mainstay of therapy. In this case report, we present three cases with PRES, treated successfully with strict volume control policy and propose that strict volume control policy may be a key element for the treatment of PRES.
