Migraine and its variants are common diseases seen in the pediatric population. One of the less well-recognized types of complicated migraine is basilar artery migraine. There is little information on basilar artery migraine concerning its relative frequency in the whole migraine, and no general agreement as to both its sex and age distributions, and locations of headache.<BR>Comparative study of basilar artery migraine and other types of migraine was made with regards to sex distribution, age of onset, locations of headache, and family history of migraine.<BR>This study comprised 72 children with basilar artery migraine (22 boys and 50 girls) and 167 children with other types of migraine (73 boys and 94 girls). There was higher occurrence of basilar artery migraine in female to male than that of other migraine, but this was not significant. Age of onset was not different between the two groups. Locations of headache were not different between the two groups (predominantly at frontal and temporal regions). Anamnesis of orthostatic dysregulation and family history of migraine were not different in frequency between the two groups. The neurological signs and symptoms in children with basilar artery migraine were vertigo (46%), visual changes (33%), diplopia (32%), paresthesia (24%), ataxia (14%), dysarthria (6%), and motor disturbance (4%).<BR>Of 239 children with migraine, 30.1% were diagnosed as having basilar artery migraine. Basilar artery migraine was not so rare as previously considered. It did not occur exclusively in adolescent girls. The location of headache was not restricted to the occipital region.
