Course Description :
One of the most agonizing types of a headache is a cluster headache. A cluster headache is primarily a neurovascular disorder. It typically presents with intense, strictly one-sided retro-orbital or a periorbital headache that is often accompanied by obvious craniofacial cholinergic symptoms. The majority of cluster headaches have a short duration, which ranges from five to 180 minutes. In some cases, the headaches occur every day; in others, they may occur six to eight times a day. It is this regularity that is the key to diagnosis. Once an organic pathology has been ruled out, the treatment of a cluster headache is usually drug therapy. For selected patients with intractable headaches, a variety of surgical procedures may help reduce or eliminate cluster headaches.
