Abstract

The prevalence of migraine was studied in 43 children with benign epilepsy with Rolandic spikes and in 129 healthy controls, matched for age and sex. No significant differences were found between the two groups. The authors stress the need for epidemiological studies to verify the actual association between migraine and epilepsy and/or epileptiform EEG abnormalities in order to avoid distorted findings due to selected samples.
