Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is characterized by global encephalopathy, seizures, headache, or visual symptoms. Neuroimaging of PRES is typically associated with vasogenic edema in the occipital lobes and other posterior structures [1]. However, involvement of PRES in only pons is rare. The present study report a patient with isolated pons variant of PRES complicated with ischemic stroke which has not been previously reported in the literature. A 36-year-old right-handed… Expand
Isolated pons involvement in Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome: Case report and review of the literature
TLDR
Though isolated infratentorial involvement in PRES recognizes several causes, hypertension, which is a common feature in Turner syndrome, would have played a key role in this case with solely pons MRI T2-hyperintensity. Expand
Isolated brainstem involvement in posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome: a case report and review of the literature
TLDR
Clinicians should recognize this unique variant finding in PRES, which always affects males with severe hypertension, especially combined with renal dysfunction, as well as treat it with antihypertension. Expand
Isolated pontine involvement of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome with concomitant ischemic cerebral infarction
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the co‐occurrence of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and ischemic infarctions, especially in patients with untreated/uncontrolled hypertension and chronic kidney disease. Expand
Isolated Pons Involvement in Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome in a Patient with Chronic Renal Insufficiency: Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
A patient with pres who suffered from chronic renal insufficiency and in whom the pons was solely involved is described, to investigate the potential pathophysiological mechanism of pres. Expand
Isolated pons variant of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome complicated with ischemic stroke in a young patient: association or coincidence?
TLDR
It is suggested that disturbance of hemodynamics induced by abrupt hypertension might be the cause of lacunar infarct, small vessels vasospasm would be one of the other possible pathogeneses which are prone to result in arteriolar occlusion. Expand
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome with ischemic infarction complicated with intrauterine fetal death
TLDR
A 35-year-old Asian woman with twin pregnancy underwent cesarean section at 32 weeks of gestation and presented with focal seizures and visual field defect 2 days after undergoing cesar section, and all neurologic deficits completely improved after 21 days of admission. Expand
Hypertensive encephalopathy and cerebral
TLDR
The case report suggests that the presence of hypertensive encephalopathic and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome should alert clinicians and lead to prompt treatment in order to prevent cerebral damage. Expand
Hypertensive encephalopathy and cerebral infarction
TLDR
The case report suggests that the presence of hypertensive encephalopathic and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome should alert clinicians and lead to prompt treatment in order to prevent cerebral damage. Expand
A Case Report
TLDR
A case report illustrating histopathologically proven BPDCN initially misdiagnosed as breast infiltrating ductal carcinoma in a 39-year-old woman is presented to reduce misdiagnosis when the initial symptom is unusual. Expand

TLDR
Systemic features in PRES appear to render strong support for the older theory of vasoconstriction coupled with hypoperfusion as the mechanism, including supporting evidence and current available imaging/clinical data related to the conditions that develop PRES. Expand
