Authors: Çimen Atalar A, Yalın OÖ, Aslan H, Baykan B Abstract OBJECTIVES: There are only a handful of studies examining the clinical differences between patients with and without a family history of migraine. Our aim is to compare the descriptive and clinical properties of patients with and without a family history, and to investigate the association between the migraine burden and disease characteristics and disability of migraine. METHODS: A total of 530 consecutive patients diagnosed with migraine according to the International Headache Society criteria were enrolled into the study. Detailed sys...

Migraine headache is an episodic phenomenon, and patients with episodic migraine have ictal (headache), peri-ictal (premonitory, aura, and postdrome), and interictal (asymptomatic) phases. We aimed to find the functional characteristics of the migraine brain regardless of headache phase using dynamic functional connectivity analysis. We prospectively recruited 50 patients with migraine and 50 age- and sex-matched controls. All subjects underwent a resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging. Significant networks were defined in a data-driven fashion from the interictal (>48 hours apart from headache phases) pati...

G Gowripriya, Krishnamurthy Sridhar, Mukul VijNeurology India 2019 67(5):1347-1351 Intracranial myoepithelial tumors are extremely rare with <10 cases reported outside the sellar region. The authors describe a case of a 43-year-old male patient who presented with headache, numbness in the face, and a dumbbell-shaped lesion in the Meckel's cave clinically and radiologically suggestive of a Schwannoma. The histopathological and immunohistochemical evaluation led to a diagnosis of myoepithelioma. A review of literature reveals that this is only the ninth case of intracranial myoepithelial tumor reported, fifth benign...

Here, we describe the first case of familial hemiplegic migraine type 1 (FHM1) resulting from a T666M mutation in the CACNA1A gene of a Chinese individual. A 54-year-old female patient demonstrated extensive clinical manifestations, including transient paropsia, hemianesthesia, logaphasia, hemiplegia, migraine, fever, impaired consciousness, and progressive cerebellar ataxia. At admission, neurological examination showed a fever of 38.6°C, coma, bilateral pupillary constriction, left-sided deviation of both eyes, meningeal irritation, and bilateral positive Chaddock's sign. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) displa...

Conclusions: PFO closure is effective in alleviating migraine in the long term. This effect is more obvious when patients are younger than 45 years and RLS is large.
