 Migraine is the most common neurological disorder and the third most common disease worldwide. However, the underlying mechanisms contributing to its development are not completely understood. Symptoms may arise from a combination of dilation-independent vascular events and neurogenic mechanisms interacting throughout the brain and within the trigeminovascular system in the meninges MATERIALS AND METHOD: We report here a case of a patient with a suspected familial hemiplegic migraine who presented an increased recurrence of events from one per month to one every other day. Three magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisitions were performed after the appearance of a strong crisis which included a paresthesia and aphasia along with headaches. Two MRIs were performed close to the crisis, while the last one was done 1 month later.
