Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The case of a young woman presenting with repeated headache episodes associated with right eye midriasis is described. CT scan, MR of the brain and selective cerebral angiography were unremarkable. Tyramine eyedrop response suggested parasympathetic hypofunction on the affected side. The diagnosis of ophthalmoplegic migraine is proposed.
