Migraine and stroke are the most common neurovascular disorders affecting adults. Migraine, particularly with aura, is associated with increased stroke risk both during and between attacks; as such, migraine may be viewed as a potentially modifiable risk factor for stroke. The exact mechanism by which migraine can predispose to stroke remains uncertain.
