Epilepsy is the presence of two or more seizures in the absence of an identifiable cause for the seizures; that is, no intracranial or metabolic abnormality. Epilepsy affects approximately 1% of the US population, which represents an estimated 1.1 million women of reproductive age. The management of women with epilepsy during pregnancy is the focus of this article.
