Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review of the approach in pregnancy to a very commonly encountered neurological disorder (headache), along with less commonly encountered neurological entities that none the less deserve the obstetrician's attention. Definitions of specific disorders and differential diagnoses are reviewed, along with treatment options and pregnancy-associated morbidities. Headache is reviewed first including the common primary headaches migraine and tension-type headache. The disabling neurological disorders-multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury are grouped due to common morbidities affecting pregnancy. Finally, Bell palsy is also reviewed.
