Capodieci C., Guala A., Licardi G., Peretti M.


PDF


We describe the occurrence of five pediatric patients presenting an aura encompassing neurovegetative and unilateral neurological manifestations persisting during and after the migraneous attack are described. All investigations were normal and the symptoms completely disappeared within 24-48 hours with non specific treatment. A diagnosis of hemiplegic migraine was made. The importance is underlined for the pediatrician to consider migraine in the differential diagnosis of a child first presenting with neurological symptoms even without symptoms of migraine.
