Abstract Introduction Migraine has become an important vascular risk factor during the past few years, along with the presence of white matter and clinically silent ischemic lesions. Whether these findings contribute to the migraine becoming chronic has been a source of debate. People with chronic migraine also have a less favorable metabolic profile. An exhaustive review of the literature has been made in order to try to clarify the relationship between migraine and vascular risk factors. Development Migraine, particularly with aura and in women Conclusions Since migraine is an independent vascular risk factor, better control of migraine attacks, as well as other possible concomitant vascular risk factors, should decrease the likelihood of a stroke. Overall, the real risk of infarction is low, with 3.8 new cases per 100,000 women and year.
