Two young patients experienced transient and recurrent neurological deficits, associated with headache, without fever, signs of meningeal irritation or systemic disease.
This situation in a young patient is usually a manifestation of migraine, but none of our patients had a history f vascular headache. Lumbar puncture was performed, and CSF pleocytosis found in both cases. These cases may represent a poorly recognized benign syndrome of transient neurological signs of headache and a sterile inflammatory reaction in the CSF.
