Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by cerebral blood vessels segmental vasoconstriction, spontaneous recurrent vasodilation within 3 months, impairment of cerebral arteries regulation. One of the main symptoms proved to be an intensive course was severe headache. The disease of migraine initially begins with the headache; then this condition is followed by moderate paroxysmal intensification, pulsating headache and nausea. Investigation of reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome and differential diagnostics of migraine. Investigation included examination of neurological patients who were undergone both In- and Out- Patient treatment in Neurological Department of Andizhan State Medical Institute; magnetic resonance angiography examination was carried out by Namangan Anamed Medical Service. 60 patients have been studied. They were divided into two groups. The first group included 35 patients with reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. The second group included 25 patients with migraine. There were 17 male (48.5%) and 18 females (51%) aged 29- 72, the average age is 50.5 years old within the first group. There were 10 male (40 %) and 15 females (60%) aged 15-45, the average age is 30 years old within the second group. Patients of the first group suffered from severe intensive headaches (visual analog scale - VAS) onset of headache was initiated within few minutes and aggravated on physical exertion. According to MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination), 25 patients (72%) from the first group demonstrated 24-27 points; mild cognitive impairments have been observed during examination of neurological condition; the rest 10 patients (28%) demonstrated 28-30 points. Cerebral arterial vasoconstriction was observed in patients of the first group on magnetic resonance angiography examination. Patients of the second group suffered from moderate intensive headaches (VAS); onset of headache was initiated within few hours, neurologic examination failed to reveal any pathologic changes. According to MMSE, the first group patients demonstrated 28-30 points. Cerebral arterial vasoconstriction was not observed in the second group patients on magnetic resonance angiography examination. In comparison with migraine, reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome results from severe intensive headaches within short period of time, mild cognitive impairments are observed; cerebral vasoconstriction is observed on magnetic resonance angiography examination.
