Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) has been described in various clinical settings, including severe hypertension, eclampsia, lupus and immunosuppressive therapy. We report a 27 year-old female systemic lupus erythematosus patient who developed severe headache, seizure and hemiparesis during her lupus nephritis flare. Magnetic resonance image (MRI) showed multi-focal high signal intensity lesions in the parieto-occipital cortex bilaterally and in the subcortical white matter. Her condition improved with immunosuppressive treatments, antihypertensives and hemodialysis. The extent of her lesions decreased on follow-up MRI 2 months later. This case suggests that PRES can be treated with immunosuppressive drugs that do not increase blood pressure.
