Urinary total catecholamines, their metabolites and5-hydroxy indols acetic acid which is a metabolite of serotonin have been investigated in 25 patients with migraine and in 20 controls.the levels of total cate-cholamine, vanillic mandalic acid and 3- methoxy-4 hydroxy phenyl glycol were not significantly different from the controls.However,the mean 5-hydroxy indole acetic acid excretion in case of migraine was significantly decreased associated with a significant increase in the mean hornovanillice acid,17- hydroxy corticosteroids excretion as dornpared to the control group.it is concluded that a dopaminergic and a serotonergic disturbanced is involvod in the pathogenesis of migraine.
