Woman experiences transient vision loss after C-section in rare case

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome typically manifests as headaches, convulsions and loss of vision, doctors say.

Doctors are warning about a rare neurological condition in women during the peripartum period after their 35-year-old patient developed transient vision loss following a caesarean section.

While her symptoms were mild at first, the team in Jamshedpur, India, said they were able to quickly diagnose posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) and prevent permanent damage.
