Many speculate that increasing incidences of classic vascular risk factors among young patients contribute to the increased incidence of st roke. Certainly, we are all aware of the obesity epidemic and continued prevalence of smoking, leading to premature atherosclerosis.

Risks of Epilepsy During Pregnancy
Epilepsy is a common disease that affects 1 in 26 individuals in their lifetime. According to a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke assessment, with 2 million affected individuals, epilepsy ranks only fourth to migraine, stroke, and Alzheimer disease in the prevalence of neurological disorders. Epilepsy affects more people than autism, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson disease combined. Approximately 0.3% to 0.5% of all pregnancies are among women with epilepsy (WWE). The risks during pregnancy in WWE have been uncertain.
