The incidence of malformations among infants of mothers suffering from Epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) during pregnancy is higher than that found in the general population. The risks of teratogenecity have been regarded as multifactorial, with factors such as maternal background, genetic predisposition, even if most of prospective studies show that antiepileptic drug-related factors are the primary risk factors for an increased incidence of congenital malformations. The aim of this study was to contribute towards definition the rate of congenital anomalies in the offspring of epileptic mothers and to detect possible risks factors.
