Abstract

Epilepsy is one of the most common pre-existing neurologic disorders encountered by the obstetrician (1) and pregnant women with epilepsy constitute 0.5% of all pregnancies (2). Pregnant women with epilepsy are at risk for a variety of complications (3). Pregnancy may influence the course of epilepsy and epilepsy and antiepileptic drug therapy may have an impact on the course of pregnancy and pregnancy outcome. This study represents a retrospective analysis of 40 pregnant patients with epilepsy.
