Treatment of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome in Ayurveda


Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome is a disorder with a wide clinical spectrum and is difficult to recognize. If Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome is recognized promptly, it can be resolved within a few weeks. But if not managed within time could lead to various associated conditions. In this article, we will discuss causes, symptoms, diagnostic methods, and allopathy treatment along with ayurvedic treatment for the management of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome.

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome


Cerebral blood flow is regulated by dilatation and constriction of blood vessels. Any disturbance in them can cause altered blood flow and hence cause hypertension, which is the main leading causative factor for Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome. Uncontrolled hypertension can cause hyperperfusion and damage to the cerebral blood vessels. However, Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome can occur without hypertension in presence of other causative factors. Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome needs to be differentiated from other similar disorders that include intracranial hemorrhage, central nervous system vasculitis, autoimmune encephalitis, infective encephalitis, etc disorders. The MRI findings of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome show symmetrical, reversible, posterior subcortical vasogenic edema.


There is no exact disease in Ayurveda that can be correlated with Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome. However, the condition can be assumed to occur due to an imbalance of tridoshas in the body. The imbalanced tridoshas can cause various disabilities associated with Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome along with edema.


Causes of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome include-

  • Severe Acute Hypertension
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Weak immune system
  • Immunosuppressive drugs
  • Renal failure
  • Infection
  • Organ transplantation
  • Chronic kidney failure


Symptoms of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome may include-

  • Headache
  • Visual disturbance
  • Blurred vision
  • Cortical blindness
  • Seizures
  • Altered mental status
  • Confusion
  • Altered consciousness
  • Encephalopathy
  • High blood pressure in some cases
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Brain stem defects


Diagnostic methods used for the diagnosis of Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome are many, but still, it remains poorly diagnosed. It is mainly found in kidney patients or organ transplantation cases. It should be ruled out properly for early diagnosis and exact treatment.

Methods used are-

  • Angiography
  • MRI scan
  • CT scan
  • Electroencephalography
  • Lumbar puncture


The symptomatic treatment is prescribed in allopathy for Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome. For example-

  • Drugs to reduce high blood pressure
  • Anti-epileptic drugs to resolve seizures
