The hypertensive pregnancy disorders, including preeclampsia, complicate more than 10% of all pregnancies and are the mainly cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality around the world. A rare syndrome associated with hypertension, preeclampsia and eclampsia is the syndrome of reversible posterior encephalopathy (PRES) also known as reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome. In these series of cases we reported patients with preeclampsia or eclampsia complicated with PRES at Porto Alegre Clinical Hospital during three years (2012 to 2015). Our purpose is to discuss frequent signs and symptoms and encourage early diagnosis, since its potential reversibility once the right treatment began at time.
