Book description

There are unique challenges to the care of women with epilepsy, including the gender-specific influences that women may experience owing to their age, hormonal status, and co-morbidities. Pregnancy is also a very important time for many women with epilepsy. This textbook is a portable, essential guide to the practical management of women with epilepsy. Busy clinicians can access a wealth of information summarized in a succinct and easily accessible format. Experts from around the world have reviewed and synthesized the available data from studies in hormones in epilepsy, pregnancy registries, and many aspects of the care of women with epilepsy from adolescence, through pregnancy, to menopause. Of interest to all who care for women with epilepsy, including neurologists, internists, obstetricians, anesthetists, primary care practitioners, nurses, and lactation consultants.


'Bui and Klein did an excellent job of recruiting experts from around the world to review and synthesize the available data … Despite several books published about women with epilepsy, few have the practical guidance that this one has. … This book is very well written with a lot of tables and algorithms that nicely summarize the key points of management. It also contains details of key data from multiple clinical studies. … a practical, portable tool, and I strongly recommend it to any practitioner who cares for women with epilepsy.'
