Objectives: Describing a case of QT prolongation during a migraine attack.

Materials and Methods: A 35- year old woman was admitted to our Center for arthralgias, abdominal pain and papular skin rash. She suffered from ophthalmoplegic migraine.

Results: During the recovery she had a sudden migraine attack. An ECG was performed, showing a prolonged QT interval (455 ms with respect to 397 ms in the basal ECG), lasting a few minutes and fully reversible after migraine attack.

Conclusion: We describe a case of QT prolongation during migraine attack, which returned to basal values after the episode.
