    We present a 56-year-old woman who received chemotherapy for relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and developed posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) with generalized seizures 27 days after treatment with rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin and etoposide (R-ICE). The patient had moderate renal impairment (eGFR > 30 ml/min.) and a normal blood pressure. PRES was confirmed by MRI, which showed oedema of the occipital, parietal and frontal lobes. A control MRI after four weeks showed full remission. To our knowledge this is the first published case of R-ICE causing PRES.
