Posterior reversible encephalopathy is a rare neurological disease. The association between Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and severe pneumonia is not well described in the available medical literature. We describe a case of a 51 year old female presented to our hospital with sudden loss of vision in both eyes in the background history of pneumonia who recovered completely with treatment. This case report elaborates the very rare entity of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome secondary to severe pneumonia.
