Haemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) and Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) are two diverse conditions that may have common triggering pathways. Postpartum HUS is a known phenomenon that complicates pregnancy with eclampsia and haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count (HELLP syndrome). Treatment is usually by plasmapheresis and heamodialysis. PRES, though rare may complicate pregnancy with eclampsia. We present a case of a 24-year-old primigravida who developed postpartum HUS and PRES simultaneously making it a rarest combination.
