Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Approximately 3.9% children with migraine have olfactory hallucination which was defined as a perception of a smell without the substantial existence of any physical odor.

CASE:

We described the first two cases of children with vestibular migraine, presenting visual aura and olfactory hallucination. ​ We reported two children with vertigo, visual aura, and olfactory hallucination before the headache who were responsive to topiramate.

CONCLUSION:

The clinical description of olfactory hallucination presented some characteristics of migraine aura. Olfactory hallucinations could be inserted as a migraine aura in International Classification of Headache Disorders.
