Three patients suffering from both epilepsy and migraine in whom the sole anticonvulsant treatment controlled both syndromes, were observed. All the patients were affected by symptomatic partial epilepsy and migraine with typical aura. In all patients the complete control of seizures determined by one anticonvulsant drug (CBZ or PB) was accompanied by a significant reduction in attacks. These data support the hypothesis of the existence of some relationship between some types of epilepsy and some types of migraine.
