Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction syndrome is an uncommon and often under-diagnosed neurologic disorder. It is characterized by thunderclap headache with or without focal neurologic deficits and seizures. Common provoking factors include postpartum status and vasoactive drugs. We report a case of reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction syndrome with posterior leukoencephalopathy following packed red blood cell transfusion, which is a rare complication of this commonly used modality of treatment for severe anaemia.
