Migraine And Intracerebral Hemorrhage
Published 1989 · Medicine
Stroke is a well described complication of migraine. Recently, attention has been drawn to the development of cerebral hemorrhage in middle-aged patients with common migraine. We report a patient with classic migraine who developed an intracranial hemorrhage 36 h after the onset of a migraine attack and had a good recovery over a period of six days. Including our patient there are now five cases, all females, with this complication of migraine. It is postulated that the condition is fairly common and under reported.
