Abstract

Migraines are a commonly seen complaint in the emergency department, but migraines with extensive skin markings have rarely been reported and so the cause is still unknown. We report a 28-year-old Pakistani male complaining of recurrent migraines that are now associated with skin markings that appear on his forehead and last for a few days and then disappear on their own. A diagnosis of migraines with cutaneous markings was made. An MRI was done on the patient and showed normal results. The patient has only been given painkillers for the treatment of his migraines. No other treatment or interventions have been done. The cause of these markings is still unknown, and very little literature has been written on such cases. Those markings appear to be self-resolving as the migraines subside. More investigations and research have to be done in order to find the cause of such markings, establish the natural history, and enhance their management.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 July 2018.
All research outputs
#12,453,910
of 22,465,943 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Emergency Medicine
#286
of 596 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#136,997
of 301,552 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Emergency Medicine
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,465,943 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 596 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 301,552 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
