Recently in the journal, epidemiological data are presented on visual snow syndrome (VSS) using a crowdsourcing online platform [1].

Further, they assessed frequent headache lasting longer than 4 hours, which was interpreted as migraine, and neurological symptoms during headache, interpreted as aura.
