Abstract

Commentary on: Christensen J, Grønborg TK, Sørensen MJ, et al. Prenatal valproate exposure and risk of autism spectrum disorders and childhood autism. JAMA 2013;309:1696–1703.
The clinical management of women with epilepsy during pregnancy is complicated by the potential teratogenicity of medications needed to control seizures. Past research about the relationship between prenatal exposure to antiepileptic drugs and major congenital malformations has improved understanding of the immediate effects for the child, with recent studies highlighting the long-term impact on cognitive development.1 ,2 …
