Pediatric hemiplegic migraine: susceptibility weighted and MR perfusion imaging abnormality.

Author information

  • 1Department of Radiology, Children's Hospital of Michigan, Detroit, MI, USA.


We report on an 11-year-old girl suffering from a typical attack of hemiplegic migraine with characteristic abnormalities in perfusion MR and susceptibility-weighted MR imaging findings. The imaging abnormalities were resolved 48 h after the attack. Susceptibility-weighted MR imaging findings correlated well with the MR perfusion, thus it can be used along with conventional MRI for evaluation of children with complex migraine attacks. Susceptibility-weighted MR imaging might have a diagnostic role in assessing the vascular events in hemiplegic migraine.
