In a previous communication,1 a series of twenty-two cases of migraine was reported in which the abdominal symptoms dominated the clinical picture. Great care was used to exclude organic disease of the nervous and other systems by physical examination and other tests and by prolonged observation in many instances for a number of years. It was also pointed out that, with the exception of the few cases reported by Moebius,2 Schmidt,3 Ortner,4 Kuttner,5 Bary,6 Mendel,7 Curschmann,8 and Bordoni,9 comparatively little mention is made in the literature of migraine cases in which the abdominal symptoms replaced the hemicrania or greatly overshadowed the headache. The exhaustive monographs of Liveing10 and Flatau11 give only scant mention to the form of migraine under discussion. A study of the literature since the date of our previous publication reveals only two additional reports on migraine
