Twenty patients with complex neuropsychologic symptoms associated with classic migraine were selected from a group of 200 patients with vascular headache. Twenty types of symptoms were found and grouped into six categories (language, visual symptoms, cognitive-dysmnesic symptoms, olfactory-gustatory hallucinations, automatisms, and somatosensory symptoms). Some of the symptoms found have apparently not been reported previously. The importance of the analysis of this complex neuropsychologic set of symptoms and of the possible consequences of complicated, frequent vascular headache is emphasized.
