Background: Migraine is a proceeding or an episodic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent headache, moderate to severe, often in association with a series of symptoms of autonomic nervous system. Approximately 14% of the population suffer from this pathology with a peak incidence between 25 and 55 years of age. In addition, headache is very common in children and adolescents, particularly among teenagers whose prevalence is estimated around 8-23%. Case results: This report focuses on two cases with recurrent migraine episodes, different for sex and age, that shows the effectiveness of oxygen-ozone therapy also using two different modalities of ozone administration. In both of the cases, a drastic reduction in the frequency and intensity of pain with a consequent reduction in disability and an improvement in some health-related quality of life aspects was observed. Discussion: A greater number of patients are required to establish the efficacy and tolerability of ozone therapy in headache disorder, for which it is intended a treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs, often also toxic and with adverse effects.
