Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) in Palliative Medicine: Case Report and Discussion
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is associated with seizures, visual disturbances, headache, and altered mental status.

Palliative medicine consultants should be aware of PRES and be prepared to counsel families on the treatment and prognosis of this syndrome.
