The AA. examined 24 subjects suffering from classic or common migraine and 42 subjects with complicated migraine. In 6 cases of complicated migraine, radiologic investigations (cerebral CT scan or scintigraphy) showed ischemic lesions. The AA. discuss their results, on the basis of the most recent acquisitions concerning the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in the complicated migraine; particularly, they dwell upon "the platelet hypothesis".
