Migraine disease: evolution and progression


Migraine is a complex pathology and it should be regarded as a disease evolving during the lifetime along with other comorbid conditions. Migraine susceptibility may be unmasked by exogenous substances and the occurrence of migraine attacks may change following drugs given for therapeutical purposes. The evolution of migraine should be followed up because childhood migrainous manifestations may vary over the years and an earlier diagnosis may not apply later on.
