Description Persistent aura without infarction (PAWI) is one of the complications of migraine. In comparison to classic migraine aura, pathological visual phenomena are present constantly, at least for 1 week, but often for more. An efficient treatment for PAWI is currently unknown. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a progressive, non-invasive therapeutic method using a magnetic field transmitted through a special coil to activate the neural tracts in the brain. The efficacy of rTMS has been proven in treating several neurological disorders. The aim of this review article is to suggest a proper rTMS protocol for treating PAWI in the pursuance of studies to date.
