In an article published on November 10, 2016, Ars Technic reported that a US physician had recently diagnosed a pregnant woman with a stroke after her doctor diagnosed her with a preexisting condition.
The article also reported that the woman had received some form of brain damage as a result of the stroke, but that the stroke had been caused by the medication she took before the stroke.
Since the article’s publication, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has removed the article from its website and has stated that the article does not reflect the facts, and the article has been removed from the Federal Register.
Despite these developments, the article continues to be referenced on various websites.
In the article, the author writes that:The stroke was caused by a preeXplained preexistent condition, which could be due to a brain injury, a congenital abnormality, or other causes.
However, the condition has not been officially confirmed, and since the condition is not confirmed by the FDA, it is unclear whether or not the stroke could have been caused either by a brain damage or a preexiploid condition.
In the latest update to the article posted on November 13, 2017, the FDA states:The article has not changed since its publication, and there are no additional updates posted to the fda website.
