Abstract

Migraine is a common intermittently debilitating neurovascular disorder that affects younger adults, especially women. The diagnosis is generally made based on clinical criteria, with neuroimaging used in some cases to exclude secondary causes of headache. This article reviews current understanding of the mechanisms underlying migraine and approaches to treating it.
