Migraine has consistently been connected with rosacea. Commonalities in epidemiology, trigger factors and associated neuropeptides support shared aetiology and pathophysiological pathways, though underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We established two cohorts of patients diagnosed with either migraine and/or rosacea. All patients were phenotyped in regard to migraine and rosacea. In this article, we describe the baseline parameters of the cohorts. In the future, we expect that these cohorts will help uncover potential disease overlaps and allow for prolonged follow-up through national Danish health registers.
