Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome in a Five-Year-Old Child: A Case Report.

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a neuroradiologic syndrome. The etiology of PRES is still unclear. Some factors were described. We present a case of a pediatric patient with liver transplant who developed PRES following blood transfusion while receiving tacrolimus therapy. A 5½-year-old boy who underwent living donor liver transplantation, and PRES developed on the sixth day post transplant under tacrolimus treatment after 6 hours of red blood transfusion. PRES is a rare condition; it should be kept in mind about patients who have received organ transplants and develop sudden neurologic symptoms.
