New daily persistent headache appears to be a female-predominant disorder, marked by a continuous daily headache with associated migrainous symptoms, and over 80% of patients could state the exact date their headache began.
From a nosological point of view most of what is covered here could be placed in the various parts of the classification system of the International Headache Society, but it serves both patients and clinicians to highlight this syndrome because the implications of missing the diagnosis can be so profound.
