Three patients with a history of migraine and type-II coital cephalalgia with signs of vertebrobasilar deficiency are presented.

Together with the few reports in the literature our cases outline a benign form of complicated coital cephalalgia, possibly resulting from ischaemic disturbances triggered by haemodynamic changes occurring in orgasm. © 1988, International Headache Society.
