A very interesting research on migraine by R. M. Balyeat and H. J. Rinkel (ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE, 1931, v, 713-728) causes me to offer the results of my long study of the causative factors of this painful disease or syndrome. Also, I believe that we should study this syndrome from all angles.
In the first place, I agree with the above writers that the cyclic vomiting of young children is a migraine symptom. Secondly, I also find that those afflicted with migraine very commonly have their attacks become less frequent or entirely disappear after about forty-five years of age.
