A 35-year-old female with migraine without aura, presented with sudden onset of visual aura along with loss of vision on the left side. Following this she had nausea, vomiting and headache. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) performed at this stage revealed ill-defined lesions hyperintense on Flair images, located in the right temporal and right occipital region. Diffusion weighted images, MR angiogram, T1-weighted and T2-weighted images were normal. She got relief with symptomatic treatment. Twenty days after this attack of migrainous aura she had a similar episode. An MRI scan was performed again. It revealed similar lesions only in the right occipital lobe. Follow-up MRI performed seven weeks later was normal.
