A 39-year-old male physician with a 27-year history of chronic severe migraine had a prolactin-secreting pituitary microadenoma diagnosed as an incidental finding following an automobile accident. Treatment of the prolactinoma with bromocriptine provided complete and lasting resolution of the migraine as well, suggesting a possible etiologic relationship between these two prevalent conditions, and the possibility of treating at least some cases of migraine with bromocriptine.
