About this item

Neurological illness before and during pregnancy is reasonably common and much of the care provided for pregnant patients with a neurological illness is through experience and anecdotal treatments. This title consolidates the information available into one concise resource written by a specialist team who deal with pregnant women with neurological issues every day. The most frequent neurological illnesses in women of reproductive age are headache, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis, plus there can be frequent neurological complications for women in pregnancy, including peripheral neuropathies. The text covers these major subspecialties in neurology as well as anesthesia, radiology, and neurosurgical issues that are encountered in pregnancy.

The eighteen chapters in this book cover brief descriptions of epidemiology, disease symptoms, evaluation, treatment, and any other special considerations for that topic. Multiple tables and summaries illustrate each topic with a focus on providing the reader with concise, practical information for everyday use.
