Migraine is a frequent neurological pathology. However, the diagnosis can be difficult to establish, especially when it is accompanied with an atypical aura that can be confounded with a stroke.

The patient had not mentioned migraine in her history before the surgery. This lack of information led to unnecessary therapy.
