Abstract

 Introduction: To assess possible association of history of migraine with HYPERTENSION disorder.Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective study to compare history of migraine in 90 women affected by PE with 90 women without PE as the control group. They recruited by a nonrandomized consecutive sampling method. Data were collected by a questionnaire including demographic, medical and obstetrics and migraine assessment sections. Data were analyzed using SPSS.Results: Results showed increased risk of PE in women with history of migraine (Odds Ratio: 2.87; p<0.05). Result demonstrated that migraine history in the case group is 14.4% and in control group is 5.6 %. Gestational age (GA) at delivery and weight of neonate (WN) were significantly lower comparing to control (GA: 37.3±2.6 vs. 38.7±1.3 weeks t-test; p<0.01) (WN: 2930±690 vs. 3330±420; t-test; p<0.0). Cesarean section was more frequent in PE group comparing Control group [37(42%) vs. 14(15.6%)]; Chi Square; p<0.01].Conclusion: Association of migraine with PE is the result of some similar mechanism leading to ENDOTHELIAL DYSFUNCTION. Frequent reports of association between migraine and PE in different population suggest history of migraine as a risk factor for PE/GH.
