Migraine variants include retinal migraine, hemiplegic migraine, chronic migraine, and episodic syndromes that may be associated with migraine.
Migraine variants should be differentiated from trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias, including cluster headaches, paroxysmal hemicrania, and syndrome of neuralgiform conjunctival injection and tearing. Similarly, they should be differentiated from other primary headache disorders, such as stabbing headache, thunderclap headaches, hypnic headaches, hemicranias continua, and primary headache syndromes associated with physical activity.
