Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a reversible disorder with typical radiological findings. Majority of patients with PRES are in adults and rarely seen in children. In this report two patients with PRES were presented. In both the patients the primary diagnosis was found to be severe hypertension, seizures with loss of consciousness and glomerulonephritis. As posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome is rarely seen in children, it should be treated symptomatically to relieve the symptoms, if not treated it may lead to further complications like cerebral haemorrhage, cerebral herniation and refractory status epilepticus.

Keywords : Severe Hypertension, Seizures, Glomerulonephritis.
