Author information

The history of a girl is described who experienced two separate episodes of acute confusion with agitation. The first occurred at the age of four after a mild head injury, the second recently at the age of thirteen after prolonged physical effort. EEG's performed during both episodes showed marked diffuse slowing. Both clinical picture and EEG normalized rapidly. Clinical features and prompt recovery made the diagnosis 'acute confusional migraine' most likely. The relevant literature and importance of recognizing the syndrome are discussed
