Objective.—Two children experienced auditory hallucinations during migraine (one with migraine without aura and one with migraine with aura). These hallucinations only occurred during headache.

Background.—Auditory hallucinations are rarely reported in patients with migraine. These patients often have other psychiatric or neurologic disorders such as affective disorder or epilepsy.

Methods.—Case report and a review of the literature.

Results.—No other neuropsychiatric disorder was identified in either patient at presentation or upon follow-up.

Conclusions.—Auditory hallucinations can rarely occur in patients with migraine. Further study of this association might provide insight to any relationship between migraine, auditory hallucinations, and the temporal lobe.
