Cluster Headache: Clinical Presentation, Lifestyle Features, and Medical Treatment
TLDR
Cluster headache is a rare but severe headache form with a distinct clinical presentation and misdiagnoses and mismanagement among patients are high. Expand
Managing cluster headache
TLDR
This article aims to guide general neurologists to an accurate diagnosis and practical management options for cluster headache patients. Expand
Validation of a Brief Self‐Administered Questionnaire for Cluster Headache Screening in a Tertiary Center
TLDR
Early neurologic referral is indicated in patients with a suspected diagnosis of cluster headache so that management can be optimized and unnecessary procedures avoided. Expand
Primary headache disorders.
TLDR
The features and treatment ofPrimary headache disorders include migraine, tension-type headaches, and the trigeminal autonomic cephalgias, and hemicrania continua, although classified separately by the International Headache Society, shares many features of both migraine and the TACs. Expand
Update: Pathogenesis and Diagnosis in Headache
TLDR
The recently proposed pathogenesis in migraine, diagnostic issues which might to be changed in coming ICHD‐III, and commonly experienced difficulties in diagnosis of cluster headache and tension type headache are mentioned. Expand
Diagnosis and management of the primary headache disorders in the emergency department setting.
TLDR
The diagnostic criteria and management strategies for the primary headache disorders are reviewed; nonsteroidals, triptans, dihydroergotamine, and the antiemetic dopamine antagonists may play a therapeutic role for each of these acute headaches. Expand
Medication-overuse headache in patients with cluster headache
TLDR
Patients with CH, especially those with a personal and/or family history of migraine, must be carefully monitored for MOH, and medication withdrawal should be considered if a CH patient presents with features of MOH. Expand
12 The Medical History: The Key to Correct Headache Diagnosis

TLDR
Results of a long-term study indicate that the tolerability and efficacy of sumatriptan 6 mg is maintained in long- term use, and that there is no evidence of tachyphylaxis. Expand

Patients with cluster headache offer a population of primary headache patients with devastating acute attacks of pain and the syndrome is stereotyped with effective evidence-based treatments that are prescribed in only half of patients having cluster headache. Expand

TLDR
Verapamil is the preventive therapy of choice for cluster headache and early treatment onset shortens episode duration by four times, while chronic cluster headache probably requires higher doses. Expand
Migrainous neuralgia or cluster headache?
TLDR
There is no evidence that the condition has a neuralgic basis, and it is suggested that the misleading designation “migrainous neuralgia” be replaced by the descriptive term “cluster headache”, until such time as the aetiology is fully understood. Expand
