Migrainous patients may have visual field deficits at times between migraine attacks that mostly are unilateral and resolve after 7-10 days. Herein, we report a 25-year-old woman, a known case of classic migraine, with bilateral inferior altitudinal visual field defect and complete recovery after 4 months. All lab tests, including brain magnetic resolution imaging and angiography, coagulation tests and visual evoked potentials, were normal.
