Atypical case of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrom
Eclampsia, an obstetric emergency frequently seen in pregnant or puerperal women, is a risk factor for posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Most cases of eclampsia occur postpartum. We report a woman with PRES associated with eclampsia 10 weeks post-delivery, the latest onset ever reported.

A 23-year-old healthy woman presented headache and nausea 10 weeks after delivery. Two days later, she generalized tonic-clonic seizure. Her brain MRI presented the foci which is typical of PRES. The patient was diagnosed as PRES associated with eclampsia. The patient received levetiracetam and edaravone. Her clinical course was uneventful and she fully recovered without neurological complications
