Posterior reversible encepalopathy syndrome (PRES), or reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy, is a neurologic condition characterized by recognizable pattern of altered mental status, headache, visual changes and seizures in association with findings indicating a predominantly posterior leucoencephalopathy on imaging studies. It has rarely been described in children. We report two cases of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) complicated by PRES and review the literature.
