Jouvent, Eric; Mangin, Jean-François; Hervé, Dominique; Düring, Marco; Dichgans, Martin; Chabriat, Hugues (February 2012): Cortical folding influences migraine aura symptoms in CADASIL. In: Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, Vol. 83, No. 2: pp. 213-216


Migraine with aura is a hallmark of cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL). In contrast with the majority of CADASIL patients, some affected subjects never experience visual symptoms during their attacks of migraine with aura. The aim of this study was to determine whether specific morphology of the primary visual cortex is associated with the absence of visual symptoms during migraine aura in CADASIL.
