Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES)





Characteristic imaging pattern in PRES is the presence of edema involving the white matter of the posterior portions of both cerebral hemispheres, especially the parieto-occipital regions, in a relatively symmetric pattern that spares the calcarine and paramedian parts of the occipital lobes. Recently, studies with diffusion-weighted sequenceshave shown increased apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) in the involved regions which suggests reversible vasogenic edema as an underlying pathophysiology.
