Focal seizures in sturge-weber angiomatosis that may progress to generalized seizures are a common sign of this disease, whereas Migraine with Aura in cerebral Angiomatosis is rare. In brain arteriovenous malformation, epilepsy is also common and Migraine may be eventually seen but it is very rare in pediatric age group, especially when associated with aura. In this article 3 children (8, 11 and 14 years old) are introduced who presented with Migraine associated with aura. 2 of them had sturge-weber disease and the 3rd one, cerebral Angiomatosis malformation; All three had focal seizures that progressed to generalized epilepsy.
