Various unspecific neurological complications can be caused by hypomagnesemia, which can lead to diagnostic confusion. Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is one of these complications, which is exceedingly rare and In English-language literature, it was only mentioned twice. Case Presentation,We're reporting a case involving a 60-year-old man who presented with PRES and correlated with hypomagnesemia affecting only the cerebellar hemispheres.Following the exclusion of all the possibilities, we began magnesium replacement therapy with other potential etiologies of PRES, which led to a remarkable yet fluctuating clinical care. And chemical enhancement. Only after the discontinuation of proton pump inhibitors, a complete recovery with no need for more supplementation was achieved .Conclusion , the role of magnesium in the pathophysiology of PRES is highlighted. In each PRES case with unknown etiology, underlying hypomagnesemia should be considered.
