ABSTRACT
Hypertensive encephalopathy is an acute neurologic syndrome that occurs in association with abrupt and marked elevation of blood pressure and is characterized by headache, vomiting, seizure, visual disturbances and altered mental status. Hypertensive encephalopathy is most commonly associated with renal disease in children, including acute glomerulonephritis, reno-vascular hypertension, and end-stage renal disease. Hypertensive encephalopathy associated with nephrolithiasis has not been reported. We have experienced a 10-year-old boy with hypertensive encephalopathy associated with ureteral stone.
Key words: Hypertensive encephalopathy | Ureteral stone
