Migraine is another neurologic problem associated with periventricular abnormalities. In a study by Soges and colleagues Endnote periventricular hyperintensities were found in 41 per cent of patients with classic or common migraine and in 57 per cent of patients with complicated migraine. The white matter lesions resemble deep white matter ischemia or vasculitis more than multiple sclerosis, and the classic pattern of headaches usually identifies these patients.
