Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome: not always posterior, or reversible, or with associated encephalopathy. These and other clinical and neuroimaging factoids are reviewed in this week's edition of BrainWaves where we discuss the various--and often disparate--features of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome.
