EAN 2023 | Migraine as a symptom of rare monogenic vascular disorders

Irene de Boer, MD, from Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, Netherlands, discusses migraine as a symptom of underlying rare monogenic vascular disorders such as CADASIL or RVCL-S. She speaks of the importance of correctly recognizing atypical migraines as parts of genetic disorders, as they require different treatments and counseling for patients to discuss outcomes. Migraine with atypical aura or migraines combined with other symptoms such as kidney problems or liver diseases may require additional follow up to correctly diagnose the specific disorder present in the patient. Diagnosis can be helped by examining patient’s family history for migraine disorders, although they can occur as de novo mutations not inherited from family. Recorded at the 9th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 held in Budapest, Hungary.
