Purpose : The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the therapeutic effects of topiramate differ according to the types of migraine. Methods : We recruited 38 children and adolescents with migraine who had been treated with topiramate. The effect of topiramate was evaluated on the basis of the change in the frequency of migraine attacks after treatment. Results : Among patients having migraine with aura, 85.7% showed complete recovery, 1 (7.1%) showed partial recovery, and 1 did not show any recovery. Among patients having migraine without aura, 47.1% showed complete recovery, 29.4 % showed partial recovery, and 23.5% showed no recovery. Among patients suspected with migraine, 1 (20%) showed complete recovery, 1 (20%) showed partial recovery, and 3 (60%) showed no recovery. Conclusion : Our results indicated that topiramate exhibited excellent therapeutic effects for migraine accompanied with aura, and it was effective in migraine without aura. However, the effect of topiramate in patients suspected with migraine was uncertain.
