Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy (RPL) is a syndrome that has been described in both the clinical and the neuroradiologic literature. It is often characterized by a constellation of clinical symptoms including headache, altered mental status, visual changes, and seizures. Neuroimaging resembles that of hypertensive encephalopathy with bilateral subcortical and cortical edema in a predominantly posterior distribution.
