Abstract
Cerebrovascular accidents are an important indirect obstetric cause of maternal morbi-dity and mortality. The incidences, causes, and prognosis of nonhemorhagic strokes occurr-ing in association with pregnancy or puerperium are poorly understood. Cerebral venous thrombosis is an uncommon form of cerebrovascular disease. But pregnancy, especially pu-erperium is predisposing events of cerebral venous thrombosis. The overall average mortal-ity of pregnant patients with cerebral venous thrombosis is approximately 30%. An aggre-ssive work-up to define the etiology of stroke in pregnancy or puerperium is necessary in order to implement cause-specific management with subsequent reduction in morbidity and mortality.
