A 59-year-old woman had severe bilateral vision loss as well as altered sensorium, headaches, and seizures. The blood pressure was 203/180 mmHg. MRI revealed signal abnormality in the bilateral parieto-occipital areas, predominantly in the white matter, without infarction, which is consistent with posterior reversible encephalopathic syndrome. Visual acuity improved following treatment of hypertension. (Contributed by Dr. Sangeeta Khanna.)
