Objective and purpose Migraine is related to white matter lesions (WMLs), and attack frequency and duration in migraine patients are thought to increase WMLs. However, the relationship between vestibular migraine (VM) and WMLs remains unclear. This study explored the risk factors for WMLs in VM patients and provided a basis for the prevention of WMLs in VM patients.


Conclusion: These results substantiate that vertigo frequency is an independent risk factor for WMLs in VM. A high frequency of vertigo episodes is more likely to be associated with WMLs than a low frequency. These results suggest a possible approach to the prevention of WMLs in VM patients.
