Abstract

Auras of visual aberrations as well as other neurological disturbances including somatosensory and perceptual symptoms that precede a headache distinguish migraine with aura (classic migraine) from migraine without an aura (common migraine) and other varieties of headache. Visual auras that characterize migraine with aura can be classified and distinguished from other neurologic and psychiatric causes of visual aberrations. Examples of migraine visual auras, which are often described but rarely shown in the medical literature, are presented and their mechanism is discussed.
