Cluster headache syndrome. Ways to abort or ward off attacks

, : Cluster headache syndrome. Ways to abort or ward off attacks. Postgraduate Medicine 91(3): 96-104

Cluster headache is a syndrome of severe head and facial pain accompanied by autonomic abnormalities. Men are affected more frequently than women. Headaches occur daily during periods of susceptibility, which may be followed by periods of remission. The etiology of cluster headache is uncertain. Recent work suggests that hypothalamic dysfunction and/or oxyhemoglobin desaturation may be involved in its pathogenesis. Effective medical regimens are available for aborting acute attacks and for preventing attacks. Surgical ablation of the trigeminal ganglion has been effective in some patients when conventional medical therapy has failed.

The mechanism and sidedness of this effect was studied by an...
