The objective of the present study was to use systematic nation-wide case-finding methods to establish the prevalence and sex ratio of hemiplegic migraine (HM) in the entire Danish population of 5.2 million inhabitants. Affected patients were identified from three different recruitment sources: the National Patient Register, case records from private practising neurologists and advertisements. Based on the observed number of affected patients from each case-finding method, it was attempted to… Expand
A population-based study of familial hemiplegic migraine suggests revised diagnostic criteria.
TLDR
A systematic search for familial cases of migraine with an aura that included motor weakness in the Danish population was performed in order to generate non-selected material of as many FHM cases as possible and to compare this material with already available population-based clinical descriptions of headache with typical aura (MA). Expand
Clinical Characteristics of 362 Patients with Familial Migraine with Aura
TLDR
There seems to be a correlation between more severe symptoms and familial aggregation, and the co-occurrence of migraine without aura was higher in familial NHMA than in the general population. Expand
Evidence for a separate type of migraine with aura
TLDR
Patients with sporadic hemiplegic migraine had clinical symptoms identical to familial hemipLegic migraine and significantly different from migraine with typical aura, which is a separate entity. Expand
Trigger factors for familial hemiplegic migraine
TLDR
Many FHM patients report trigger factors and one-third reported at least one trigger factor often or always triggering FHM, which is the same as for MA. Expand
Establishing the genetic heterogeneity of familial hemiplegic migraine.
TLDR
The authors clarify the penetrance of each mutation, population prevalence of mutations in genes known to cause this disorder, identify novel mutations and also show data that suggest additional as yet unidentified genetic lesions underlying this disorder. Expand
A Retrospective, Epidemiological Review of Hemiplegic Migraines in a Military Population.
TLDR
There is evidence to suggest that hemiplegic migraine has a higher incidence and prevalence rate among post 9/11 service members of the United States military as compared to the general population. Expand
Migraine with unilateral motor symptoms: a case–control study
TLDR
A syndrome of severe migraine with accompanying give-way weakness is common in tertiary care headache centres and is accompanied by other neurological symptoms. Expand
The genetic spectrum of a population-based sample of familial hemiplegic migraine.
TLDR
It is shown that only 14% of FHM families in the general Danish population have exonic FHM mutations in the CACNA1A or ATP1A2 gene, which may reflect less bias in FHM family ascertainment and/or more locus heterogeneity than described previously. Expand
Increased risk of migraine with typical aura in probands with familial hemiplegic migraine and their relatives
TLDR
It is suggested that the genetic abnormality causing FHM may also cause attacks with the symptomatology of MA, and this results are contrary to a sharing of genetic mechanisms between FHM and MO. Expand
Premonitory symptoms in migraine: A cross-sectional study in 2714 persons
TLDR
Age, gender, higher frequency, duration and intensity of headache, reduced working capacity, most aura symptoms, and associated symptoms of the headache phase were significantly associated with an increased in the number of premonitory symptoms. Expand

Migraine With Aura and Migraine Without Aura: An Epidemiological Study
TLDR
The present findings suggest that MA and MO share the pain phase, and headache was, however, less severe and shorter lasting in MA than in MO. Expand
Epidemiology of headache in a general population--a prevalence study.
TLDR
The prevalence of tension-type headache decreased with increasing age, whereas migraine showed no correlation to age within the studied age interval. Expand
Prevalence and sex-ratio of the subtypes of migraine.
TLDR
Migraine is more prevalent than previously thought and there was a significant preponderance in females of all the subtypes of migraine except migrainous disorder. Expand
Familial hemiplegic migraine in developmental age: report of two cases.
TLDR
The authors report two cases of a particular type of migraine with aura, known as familial hemiplegic migraine, which seems to depend on a decreases of cerebral blood flow originative on the occipital lobe, over the subsequentially spreading anteriory region temporal and parietal lobe. Expand
Familial hemiplegic migraine in the west of Scotland: a clinical and genetic study of seven families.
TLDR
Significant variability was found in the frequency and character of migraine attacks within and between families, and no true clinical heterogeneity was identified, but further evidence for genetic heterogeneity of the condition was found. Expand

TLDR
The most notable finding was that of a systematically earlier onset of symptoms in women, which was greater when the family history was on the paternal side. Expand

TLDR
The possibility is raised of a genetically determined susceptibility to periodic vasoconstriction in a particular vascular area as the basis of the syndrome. Expand

TLDR
The epilepsy prevalence estimate found by capture-recapture is clearly higher than that found by traditional cross-sectional methods, and could better depict the frequency of epilepsy in Africa. Expand
Familial Hemiplegic Migraine: A Clinical Comparison of Families Linked and Unlinked to Chromosome 19
TLDR
FHM linked to chromosomes 19 and FHM unlinked to chromosome 19 do not differ with respect to clinical features and in one linked family patients also displayed chronic progressive cerebellar ataxia, whereas in one unlinked family benign infantile convulsions occurred in addition to FHM. Expand
Is Familial Hemiplegic Migraine a Hereditary form of Basilar Migraine?
TLDR
It is suggested that familial hemiplegic migraine and BM may share certain pathophysiologic mechanisms, which may consist of a (genetically determined) disturbance of basilar artery blood flow. Expand
