Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome and Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome

Distinct Clinical Entities with Overlapping Pathophysiology

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The clinical and radiologic manifestations of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome are reviewed. The relationship between these entities is discussed. A hypothesis of a common underlying pathophysiology is proposed and substantiated based on the current medical literature.
