White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) have been observed with greater frequency in patients with migraine and are thought to be associated with impaired cognition and function. The relationship between WMHs and right-to-left shunt (RLS) in migraine patients is unknown. We performed a systematic review to determine if there is an association between RLS and WMHs in patients with migraine.
