Hemiplegic migraine was observed in a boy aged 16 years. The family history was unquestionable and the duration of hemiplegia was prolonged. Carotid angiography after regression of clinical signs showed a particularly profuse passage of the contrast to the contralateral side and to the area of vascularization of the basilar artery. It is supposed that particularly favourable connections existed in this case in the arterial vascular bed of the brain, with possible hypotonia of the arterial walls in this area.
