Abstract

The association of chronic migraine (CM) with an idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP), although much more prevalent than expected in clinical series of CM sufferers, is not included among the risk factors for migraine progression. We discuss the available evidence supporting the existence of a pathogenetic link between CM and idiopathic intracranial hypertensive disorders and suggest a causative role for IIHWOP in migraine progression.
