This is a common syndrome of recurrent headache that is most often seen in young adults who are otherwise healthy. Even though these headaches are sometimes referred to as "vascular" headaches, the pathophysiol-ogy may not primarily implicate vascular mechanisms. It has been noted that migraineurs have slightly more MRI hyperintensities than do age-matched control subjects, and it is possible that episodic intracerebral vasoconstriction participates in their development. Clinical mainfestations of these changes have not been established, and no specific treatment other than migraine control is indicated.
