OBJECTIVE: We have studied 37 women with all forms of cerebrovascular diseases. Our aim was to study the etiology, clinical manifestations and prognosis of such conditions during pregnancy or puerperium. METHODS: We analyzed the most common causes of cerebrovascular diseases during the given period. RESULTS: The most common causes of cerebrovascular diseases during pregnancy or puerperium are hematological coagulation disorders, cardio embolism and eclampsia, whereas other causes ara rarer. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of cerebrovascular diseases during pregnancy or puerperium is 11%. Cerebrovascular diseases are more frequent in puerperium than during pregnancy, being 1.8:1. Etiology remains undetermined in 35% of the cases.
