Lifetime basilar migraine: a pontine syndrome?
We describe the clinical and radiological findings of an 82-year-old woman patient with basilar type migraine attacks occurring over 70 years with a similar pattern of intensity and symptoms. We provide some evidence to suggest that gradual development of calcifications in the pontine tegmental nuclei can trigger attacks of basilar type migraine.
