Abstract

The postpartum period is generally considered to be increased risk of various cerebral disorders, such as reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), and eclampsia. They manifest as an isolated syndrome or overlapped. Emergent diagnosis and appropriate treatment are mandatory because of the risk of permanent cerebral damage. Here, we report a case presenting with the overlap of RCVS, PRES, and transient splenial lesion of corpus callosum after delivery.
