Cluster Headache

Cluster headache is a primary headache disorder of unclear etiology. It is more common in males, and is often precipitated by ingestion of alcohol. Not infrequently, the patient awakes from sleep with the onset of the headache. Patients are typically quite agitated during the attack, which tends to be relatively brief compared with the time-course of migraine or tension-type headaches. Cluster headaches may occur on an episodic or chronic basis. Chronic cluster headache may be primary or a stage evolving from episodic cluster headache (Tables 3 and 4).
