Abstract : The direct causes of cerebral disorders in cervical migraine are compression of the vertebral artery and irritation of the vertebral nerve by cervical osteophytes, deformed uncinate processes, as well as the pathological afferentation which occurs here. One hundred ten patients suffering from cervical migraine were observed. The most characteristic symptoms are constant dull, frequently unilateral headaches with typical irradiation from the cervical-occipital region forward. The radicular syndrome always occurs with cervical migraine: it may be more or less sharply manifest, may develop at the very beginning of the disease or may be developed later. Sometimes, practicing doctors encounter difficulties in differentiating cervical migraine from ordinary radiculitis, particularly since it is currently thought that most radicular disorders result from changes in the intervertebral discs. A clinical picture of the patient with the radical syndrome in cervical migraine is presented.
