Migraine and Tourette Syndrome

Arch Neurol. 2004;61(4):606-607. doi:10.1001/archneur.61.4.606-b

Kwak et al1 report that the frequency of migraine in patients with Tourette syndrome (TS) is 4-fold higher than in the general population, regardless of the presence of an obsessive-compulsive trait. The authors conclude that the co-occurrence of migraine might be attributable to another TS comorbidity and that the presence of migraine in family members of patients with TS "may be used as a clinical marker for this complex genetic disorder."1(p1597)
