CLINICAL HISTORY A 38-year-old woman reported a history of headache since aged 11 years, occurring about once a month. Triggers included stress and missing a meal, and she described a severe left or right hemicranial throbbing pain with associated nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and phonophobia, but no aura. Attacks lasted up to 3 days. An acetaminophen/aspirin/caffeine combination “dulled” the pain. For the last year, she had a second type of headache involving severe right or left retro… Expand
Medication-overuse headache in patients with cluster headache
TLDR
Medication-overuse headache is a previously underrecognized and treatable problem associated with cluster headache (CH). 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
Association Between Migraine and the G1246A Polymorphism in the Hypocretin Receptor 2 Gene
TLDR
The hypothalamic hypocretin/orexin system projects throughout the nervous system and affects multiple vegetative functions including generation of rhythmicity, vasomotion, autonomic symptoms as well as modulation of nociception. Expand

TLDR
Cluster headache is a rare headache entity that predominantly occurs in younger males, characterized by sudden attacks of unilateral excruciating pain localized periorbitally, associated with ipsilateral autonomic symptoms. Expand
Cluster headache: A prospective clinical study with diagnostic implications
TLDR
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
Cluster Headache in Women
TLDR
75 patients with cluster headache and 939 with migraine headache were seen among 1260 new patients at the Princess Margaret Migraine Clinic of Charing Cross Hospital over a 16-month period, and 3 points of interest emerged. Expand

Bilaterality of Cluster Headache. An Hypothesis
TLDR
This patient, a male of 24, had bilateral headache during one entire cycle, whereas during other cycles the headache was confined to one side (which alternated from one cluster period to another). 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
Cluster Headache — Clinical Findings in 180 Patients
TLDR
The study of timing of cluster periods suggests, for some patients, a constant, typical temporal pattern not necessarily related to seasons or the months of the year, and cluster headache cannot be considered as a nocturnal headache. Expand
Coexistence of Migraine and Cluster Headache: Report of 10 Cases and Possible Pathogenetic Implications
TLDR
The present series seems not to confirm the hypothesis that migraine transforms into cluster headache since both headaches persist together in the patients, but the possibility arises that the two conditions may be linked pathophysiologically: common genetic factors or functional alterations in the same central neurological circuits may play a role in the pathogenesis of both disorders.

Carotid Angiography in Cluster Headache
TLDR
The present study was undertaken on the hypothetical basis that anatomical variations in the size of the carotid artery, e.g. arteriectasis, in relation to the bony structures of the skull, particularly its foramina, might be of significance in cluster headache. Expand
