101. Hemicrania continua secondary to an ipsilateral brainstem lesion. (PubMed)

Hemicrania continua secondary to an ipsilateral brainstem lesion. We describe a 47-year-old woman with a 3-year history of a continuum mild-moderate right-side headache, with exacerbations, associated with stabbing volleys of pain on right orbit-temporal region (10/10) and right eye ptosis and lacrimation with conjunctival injection. The pain was completely abolished with indomethacin (100 mg per day). The diagnosis of hemicrania continua was made according to the International Headache Society (...) (IHS) criteria. The headache presentation was precipitated by a stroke and a right-side brainstem lesion was present at magnetic resonance imaging. This case report shows anatomoclinical evidence of the involvement of brainstem structures on the pathophysiology of hemicrania continua.

102. Prophylaxis of hemicrania continua: two new cases effectively treated with topiramate. (PubMed)

Prophylaxis of hemicrania continua: two new cases effectively treated with topiramate. Hemicrania continua (HC) is an uncommon and under-recognized primary headache disorder characterized by a strictly unilateral continuous headache of moderate intensity with possible exacerbations and associated with ipsilateral autonomic features. HC has generally a prompt and enduring response to indomethacin although 25% to 50% of treated patients develop gastrointestinal side effects. These cases pose

Hemicrania continua: a case in which a patient experienced complete relief on melatonin. This paper reports a case of hemicrania continua in which attacks were successfully eliminated while taking melatonin 7 mg at bedtime after the patient was no longer able to tolerate indomethacin due to gastrointestinal side effects.

104. Hemicrania Continua-like headache due to nonmetastatic lung cancer--a vagal cephalalgia. (PubMed)

Hemicrania Continua-like headache due to nonmetastatic lung cancer--a vagal cephalalgia. A 72-year-old man presented with a 7-week history of a new onset constant severe right-sided headache associated with redness and tearing of the right eye, which resolved on indomethacin due to nonmetastatic small cell carcinoma producing a large suprahilar mass. This is the first case report of a hemicrania continua-like headache with autonomic features due to lung cancer. I propose the term "vagal

105. Remitting form of hemicrania continua: two new cases exhibiting one unusual autonomic feature. (PubMed)

Remitting form of hemicrania continua: two new cases exhibiting one unusual autonomic feature. Hemicrania continua (HC) is an uncommon, primary headache disorder characterized by a continuous, strictly unilateral headache of moderate intensity with superimposed exacerbations of more severe pain and accompanying autonomic features. Whereas in the majority of HC patients the headache is continuous and without pain-free intervals, we report two new cases of the rare remitting form of HC. One

106. Hemicrania continua: a third case in which attacks alternate sides. (PubMed)

Hemicrania continua: a third case in which attacks alternate sides. Hemicrania continua (HC) is an uncommon, primary headache disorder characterized by a continuous unilateral headache of moderate intensity with superimposed exacerbations of more severe pain. HC exists in two temporal subtypes, a continuous form in which headaches persist continuously without remission periods, and a less common remitting form in which bouts of continuous headaches are separated by pain-free remissions

107. Hemicrania continua responsive to verapamil. (PubMed)

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.

Symptomatic hemicrania continua after internal carotid artery dissection. We report a male patient with a right internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection and a consecutive hemicrania continua (HC) fulfilling the criteria of the International Headache Society.

109. Neuro-ophthalmologic presentations of hemicrania continua. (PubMed)

Neuro-ophthalmologic presentations of hemicrania continua. We describe a series of patients with hemicrania continua, a rare indomethacin-responsive primary headache syndrome, who presented for evaluation with neuro-ophthalmologic signs and symptoms.Observational case series.Nine patients between the ages of 29 and 58 years were seen with various neuro-ophthalmologic findings and a unilateral continuous headache. A detailed history was taken from each patient, followed by a focused (...) to indomethacin, recognizing the neuro-ophthalmologic symptoms of hemicrania continua as a component of the headache syndrome is critical for prompt initiation of treatment.
