Abstract
Cerebrovascular disorders (infarction and intracranial hemorrhage), otherwise collectively referred to as stroke, are an uncommon and feared complication of pregnancy. Collectively, these disorders contribute up to 12% of all maternal deaths. Because of the common presentation with seizures, hypertension, proteinuria, and visual disturbance there has been diagnostic confusion with eclampsia, especially when cerebrovascular disorders occur antepartum or intrapartum. This case is intended to assist the clinician with clues for prompt diagnosis and therapy for this uncommon and unpreventable medical complication of pregnancy.
Key Words: Intracranial hemorrhage, Eclampsia
