Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 25 year old woman with a history of migraine came to our observation complaining of blurred vision and mydriasis in the right eye, starting several hours after a typical attack of common migraine had resolved. We believe this to be a case of ophthalmoplegic migraine characterized by only an isolated internal ophthalmoplegia without external third nerve involvement. Differential diagnosis and possible pathogenetic aspects are discussed.
