Tacrolimus is a novel immunosuppressant used to prevent graft rejection after allogenic organ transplantation. Serious neurological complications of tacrolimus are rare. We present a lady who developed confusion, paresthesiae and visual hallucinations while on tacrolimus following a renal transplant.Her tacrolimus level was high and she improved on stopping the drug. This case highlights the reversible encephalopathy induced by tacrolimus.
