Her second delivery was an emergency cesarean section due to eclampsia with PRES at 30 weeks of gestation. On examination she was unconscious with blood pressure of 220/120. She was intubated and transferred to the intensive care unit. Computer tomography scans confirmed the diagnosis of recurrent PRES.
