When telephone lines go down, or Internet connections are lost, our communities temporarily come to a halt. What if something similar were found to be happening in Parkinson's? This is the focus of Dr. Schmitz and her team at the PDF Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center.

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is a clinical and radiological diagnosis characterised by headache, confusion, visual disturbance and cerebral oedema involving the posterior region of brain. The associations between the PRES and pre-eclampsia and eclampsia, hypertension, autoimmune disease, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation are well recognised. However the development of PRES in septic surgical patients is less well documented.
