Two patients with migraine reported having experienced persistent auralike visual phenomena for months to years. All laboratory investigations were normal except for occipital hypoperfusion on the brain single photon emission computed tomography. After lamotrigine treatment for 2 weeks, they both had a resolution of the visual symptoms. Persistent migrainous visual phenomena are potentially benign and probably a status of spontaneous aura.
