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. We describe a case of 38-yr-old patient who presented just after general anesthesia with a perioperative acute migraine with atypical aura which was wrongly treated as a serious cerebral stroke. The patient had not mentioned migraine in her history before the surgery. This lack of information led to unnecessary therapy.
