Acute confusional state (ACS) as a manifestation of migraine in the pediatric age group was initially described by Gascon and Barlow. The characteristics and natural history of acute confusional migraine (ACM) have been elaborated on by other authors. The diagnosis of ACM is, however, easily overlooked in clinical practice, due to its peculiar presentation. We describe three children who had acute onset of confusion. The differential diagnosis of acute confusional state and the clinical features and management of ACM are discussed.
