Abstract

We present imaging evidence of the spreading of cortical edema with reversibly restricted water diffusion from the left occipital to the temporoparietal cortex in persistent visual migraine aura in a 58-year-old man. The right-sided visual field defect lasting for 15 days was associated with discoupling of glucose metabolism and blood flow and the decreased apparent diffusion coefficient also suggested cytotoxic edema. At 8 weeks no signs were present, and magnetic resonance imaging became normal; therefore, long-lasting restricted cortical water diffusion, even if coupled with hypometabolism and edema, can be reversible in persistent visual migraine aura.
