Epilepsy and migraine, despite some common features, have quite different pathophysiological mechanisms. Studies carried out on large population samples have shown that the relationships between migraine and epilepsy may be of the following type: associated attacks, with migraine and seizures occurring quite independently of one another; combined attacks, with the two types of attacks succeeding one another in time; basilar artery migraine with seizures and marked EEG abnormalities; benign epilepsies with occipital discharges, migraine and intercalated seizures. We report four cases of particular interest.
