Core tip: A 29-year-old migrainous woman developed dysarthria and focal sensorimotor neurological deficit during a typical migraine attack with aura. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed a right temporo-parietal ischemic lesion compatible with cortical laminar necrosis (CLN). The present case is the unique one in our stroke registry over a 19-year period that presents CLN related to migrainous cerebral infarction. Our case shows that CLN can be associated with cerebral ischemia due to migrainous infarction, an infrequent ischemic cerebral infarct of unusual etiology.
