Here, I report a case of a 58-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department (ED) with severe headache, vomiting, and sudden loss of consciousness.

CONCLUSIONS: Subjective reporting of impaired episodic memory is a poor indicator in differentiating bvFTD from AD. Sleeping disturbances, delusions, hallucinations, and unexplained somatic complaints in a patient with cognitive disturbances should prompt the clinicians to consider bvFTD as a possible diagnostic option behind these symptoms. The spectrum of symptoms in the prodromal stages of bvFTD may be more diverse than the latest criteria suggest. PMID: 32485711 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Ophthalmoplegic migraine (OM) is characterized by recurrent episodes of headache with unilateral ophthalmoplegia due to paresis of cranial nerve III, IV, or VI. The recent revision to the International Headache Classification has reclassified it as recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy (RPON). However, it is of note that the presentation of oculomotor nerve tumors may mimic RPON. Here, we report the case of a patient presenting with recurrent migraine and oculomotor palsy with several specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. The patient was initially diagnosed with migraine 15 years ago, but since 10 year...
