Women with neurologic conditions present unique challenges for the anesthesiologist during pregnancy and in the peripartum period. Many of these conditions have low prevalence, and many management decisions are guided by retrospective reviews and case reports. Although the details of management of each specific disease will be discussed elsewhere, by increasing understanding of anesthetic management issues for parturients with neurologic diseases, all providers can effectively optimize care plans and anticipate anesthetic considerations to assure safety during labor and delivery.
