Abstract
Cerebrovascular disease refers to disorder of one or more blood vessels of the brain, and the majority of lesions that arise from these are from arterial diseases. The occurrence of cerebral venous thrombosis is clearly linked to the puerperal state, and pregnancy may increase the risk of subarachnoid hemorrhage. The most common cause is rupture of arterial aneurism. Hemodynamic, hormonal or other physiological changes of pregnancy may play a role in aneurysmal rupture. We report two cases of cerebrovascular diseases in the puerperium with a brief review of concerned literatures
Key Words: Puerperium, Cerebrovascular disease
