Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is the rare manifestation of Covid-19 infection. It is previously reported in severe cases of Covid infection or in the presence of other conditions that can be an associated factor for development of PRES. We present a case of Non Severe Covid Infection that presented with headache and visual loss diagnosed as PRES and on incidental finding Covid infection was picked up and proposed to be a cause of this syndrome.
