Dramatic headache relief after sumatriptan in a patient with a pituitary macroadenoma


, : Dramatic headache relief after sumatriptan in a patient with a pituitary macroadenoma. Headache 39(6): 443-445

We are reporting an interesting case of pituitary macroadenoma. The patient presented with sudden, bifrontal, pulsating headache; photophobia; and an abducens nerve palsy, due to extension of the tumor into the cavernous sinus region. The headache resolved completely after a subcutaneous injection of sumatriptan.

Recent evidence indicates that toluene is a non-competitive inhibitor of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor-mediated synaptic currents. The NMDA receptor plays a major role in neuronal development and differentiation. The present study character...
