Patients with history of solid organ/bone marrow transplantation, chronic renal failure and hypertension are known to present with a sudden neurological deficit and a multifactorial clinicoradiological syndrome called posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Occurrence of vasogenic edema is well demonstrated on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which tends to resolve with medical therapy. Here we report a case of post-renal transplant recipient with graft failure showing typical manifestation of PRES and its successful medical management.
