82. Benign Raeder syndrome evolving into indomethacin-responsive hemicranial headache. (Abstract)

Benign Raeder syndrome evolving into indomethacin-responsive hemicranial headache. Benign Raeder syndrome is characterized by a self-limiting unilateral continuous headache associated with ipsilateral ptosis, miosis, and frequently, facial hypohydrosis. Hemicrania continua is a chronic, strictly unilateral continuous headache associated with ipsilateral cranial autonomic symptoms. We report a 50-year-old man who presented with benign Raeder syndrome, which evolved into an indomethacin (...) -responsive hemicranial headache that resembled hemicrania continua.

) seen between 1998 and 2003 at a headache center. Relevant information was transferred to a standardized form that included operational criteria for the ICHD-2. CDH subtypes were classified according the criteria proposed by S-L into transformed migraine (TM) with (TM+) and without medication overuse (TM-), chronic tension-type headache (CTTH), new daily persistent headache (NDPH), and hemicrania continua (HC).From the 69 patients with TM- according the S-L criteria, most (71%) could be classified

diagnoses and was more complex to apply.The aim of this study was to revisit the same database, now comparing the prior classification systems with the new 2004 IHS classification. In contrast with the 1st edition, the 2nd edition includes criteria for chronic migraine (CM), new daily persistent headache (NDPH), and hemicrania continua (HC).We reviewed the clinical records and the headache diaries of 638 patients seen between 1980 and 2001 at a headache center. All patients had primary CDH according (...) overuse were easily classified using the 2004 criteria (95.8%). Regarding NDPH with medication overuse, the diagnostic groups were much like results for the 1st edition. All patients with chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) and hemicrania continua (HC) according to the S-L system were easily classified using the 2004 IHS criteria.We conclude that the 2004 IHS criteria facilitate the classification of NDPH without medication overuse and HC. For subjects with TM according to the S-L system, the new IHS

88. Case series of four different headache types presenting as tooth pain. (Abstract)

Case series of four different headache types presenting as tooth pain. Case reports in the literature discuss various headache disorders that present as pain in the face. The current understanding of neuroanatomy and headache mechanisms suggests that headache pain originates within intracranial structures and is then referred to the face, jaws, and teeth. This case series describes four patients, one each with migraine headache, cluster headache, paroxysmal hemicrania, and hemicrania continua (...) , all of which who presented to dentists with the chief complaint of tooth pain. This is the first report of hemicrania continua presenting as tooth pain. It is important that dentists be cognizant of headache disorders so that they may be able to identify headache pains masquerading as toothache.

), chronic tension-type headache (CTTH), new daily persistent headache (NDPH), and hemicrania continua (HC).Among adolescents and adults there were substantial differences in the distribution of CDH subtypes. The relative frequency of TM was lower in adolescents (68.8% vs 87.4%, p < 0.001), while NDPH (21.1% vs 10.8%, p < 0.001) and CTTH (10.1% vs 0.9%, p < 0.0001) were more common. HC (0 vs 0.9%, NS) was equally rare. The lower relative frequency of TM in adolescents was accounted for by TM

fulfilled the criteria of new daily-persistent headache or hemicrania continua. Twenty-four subjects (20%) overused medications. Eighty-two (67%) of all CDH subjects had migraine or probable migraine. In the past semester, most CDH subjects (65%) did not take any sick leave for headaches. Only 6 subjects consulted neurologists in the past year, and only 1 subject took headache prophylactic agents.Chronic daily headache (CDH) was common in a large nonreferred adolescent sample. Based on the International

93. Chronic headache: New advances in treatment strategies. (Abstract)

Chronic headache: New advances in treatment strategies. Chronic daily headache (CDH) affects approximately 4 to 5% of the population and encompasses a number of different diagnoses, including transformed migraine, chronic tension-type headache (TTH), new-onset daily persistent headache, and hemicrania continua. Although the pathophysiology of CDH is still poorly understood, some research has suggested that each of the various subtypes of CDH may have a different pathogenesis. The goals

Hemicrania continua-like headache with leprosy: casual or causal association? Hemicrania continua is a strictly unilateral, moderate to severe, continuous, indomethacin-responsive primary headache disorder with ipsilateral autonomic cranial symptoms at the time of exacerbations. We describe a 30-year-old woman with a 4-month history of indomethacin-responsive hemicrania continua-like headache and one-month history of mononeuritis multiplex due to leprosy. Indomethacin was successfully weaned

96. Hemicrania continua evolving from cluster headache responsive to valproic acid. (Abstract)

Hemicrania continua evolving from cluster headache responsive to valproic acid. Hemicrania continua (HC) is a rare type of primary headache characterized by a prompt and enduring response to indomethacin. We describe a patient who suffered from cluster headache evolving into ipsilateral HC, who does not tolerate a long-term indomethacin therapy. The case was complex in terms of diagnosis, associated comorbidity, and choice of treatment; after several trials with different therapeutic regimens

98. Hemicrania continua responsive to verapamil. (Abstract)

Hemicrania continua responsive to verapamil. Hemicrania continua (HC) is a rare headache syndrome, typically responsive to indomethacin, although patients resistant to this drug have been described. Few treatment alternatives have been proposed in the literature. We here report a patient with HC whose initial excellent response to indomethacin faded but then responded remarkably to verapamil.

99. Melatonin responsive hemicrania continua. (Abstract)

Melatonin responsive hemicrania continua. Hemicrania continua is one of the indomethacin-responsive headache syndromes. There are very few effective alternative therapies for hemicrania continua, thus patients may require daily indomethacin for years. The risks of long-term indomethacin include gastrointestinal and renal dysfunction. Melatonin is a pineal hormone with a chemical structure very similar to indomethacin. Recently, melatonin was shown to be effective for primary stabbing headache (...) , another indomethacin-responsive syndrome. Three cases of melatonin responsive hemicrania continua are now reported.
