Objective: Reversible splenial lesion syndrome (RESLES) is a rare clinico-radiological condition characterized by a transient lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum. Method: A systematic search of the literature has highlighted a possible correlation between this rare condition and neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) despite only few cases have been reported. Results: This paper reports a case of RESLES syndrome in a 36-years old male patient with NMS who was undergoing psychiatric treatment for schizophrenia. Conclusions: The reported clinical case highlights the possibility of including NMS as one of the differential diagnosis in RESLES syndrome.
