Hemiplegic migraine is a rare form of migraine characterized by periodic attacks of migraine with neurologic aura and transient hemiplegia. There are familial and sporadic cases, both on a genetic basis; we describe the case of a 6-year-old boy affected by sporadic hemiplegic migraine, showing a novel ATP1A2 gene missense mutation (p.Gly715Arg) in exon 16. Long-term treatment with flunarizine resulted in good clinical response and prevention of further attacks.

Abstract

Hemiplegic migraine is a rare form of migraine characterized by periodic attacks of migraine with neurologic aura and transient hemiplegia. There are familial and sporadic cases, both on a genetic basis; we describe the case of a 6-year-old boy affected by sporadic hemiplegic migraine, showing a novel ATP1A2 gene missense mutation (p.Gly715Arg) in exon 16. Long-term treatment with flunarizine resulted in good clinical response and prevention of further attacks.
