The discovery in 1996 of the mutations in the gene FHM1, responsible for a rare familial form of migraine, heralded the era of molecular genetic research in the field of headache, and specifically migraine disorders. Since then, considerable effort has been directed towards understanding, at a molecular level, the genetic basis of one of the most common ailments afflicting mankind. In this review, recent advances in the genetics of familial as well as common migraine formes are reviewed, with emphasis placed on new emerging models of transmission, such as multigenic and mitochondrial hereditary and future studies in animals.
