ASPETTI CLINICI DELL'EPILESSIA IN GRAVIDANZA

Translated title of the contribution: Reliability of oral contraception during antiepileptic treatment

F. Vigevano, A. Bianchi

Abstract

Evidence hitherto collected warrants the following conclusions: in approx. 50% of cases pregnancy has no demonstrable effect on epilepsy; in the other 50% the course may change either for the better or the worse, but no cause-effect relationship has been proved. The evolution of epilepsy during pregnancy is totally unpredictable, both from one patient to another and in the same woman. Epilepsy in the pregnant woman requires no special therapeutic measures; treatment is the same as in the non-pregnant patient. It would be wholly unjustified for physicians to advise all their female epileptic patients to avoid pregnancy.
