Abstract:


The effect of a novel beta coronavirus named SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 on pregnancy outcomes and the neonatal prognosis is not fully documented yet. In this article, we describe a patient presented with frequent seizure and blurred vision 6 days after delivery without symptoms and laboratory data in favor of preeclampsia/eclampsia and evaluations consistent with Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome. Also, there was mild clinical and radiological evidence of COVID-19 infection.
