Abstract

Seizures occurring during pregnancy and postpartum may lead to the suspicion of eclampsia. However, it is essential to conduct paraclinical examinations (brain CT scan and brain MRI) to rule out cerebral expansive processes. In this main article, we report two cases of patients admitted for eclampsia, in whom a diagnosis of meningioma was made. Based on the observations, we discuss the different entities of this pathology with data from the literature.

Keywords: Convulsion, pregnancy, meningiomas, imaging
