Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific syndrome that it is one of major reasons of mortality in mother and fetus. This study aimed to survey the relationship between preeclampsia in during pregnancy and migraine among women attending to Kashan hospitals in 2011.

Materials & Methods: This study was an analytical case-control study. The sampling was done through a non-randomized objective method. The women were divided into two groups, the case group (with preeclampsia), 132 women and the control group (with preeclampsia) 132 women. The research data collected using demographic feature, medical and midwifery questions, evaluation of preeclampsia and migraine. The p-value of less than 0.05 was considered significant.

Results: According to the findings, the mean of the pregnancy age in the case and the control group were 36.3± 3.9 and 37.9± 2.1 week (P<0.001). In addition, there was a significant increase in women with migraine in the case group (19 cases) compared with the control group (6 cases)( P<0.001). This study showed that Odds Ratio (OR) estimated that there was 3.6 times more history of migraine among the case group vs. the control group (Odds Ratio=3.6 CI= 1.3-5.9).

Conclusion: According to results of this study, early diagnosis of preeclampsia and appropriate treatment during pregnancy can reduce the risk of preeclampsia in pregnancy.
