The incidence of migraine was studied in 4 groups of patients: patients with centro-temporal epilepsy, patients with absence of epilepsy, patients with partial epilepsy, and non-epileptic patients with a history of cranial trauma. Migraines were present in 62% of the patients with centro-temporal epilepsy, 34% of the patients with absence of epilepsy, 8% of the patients with partial epilepsy and 6% of the patients with cranial trauma. These results suggest that the association of centro-temporal epilepsy and migraine is non-fortuitous as well as, to a lesser degree, absence of epilepsy and migraine. The authors discuss the role of serotonin in the association epilepsy-migraine and suggest that centro-temporal epilepsy might be a feature for the diagnosis of migraine.
