Description: Primary headaches are recurrent headaches that are not attributable to an identifiable cause, such as a neoplasm, cerebrovascular condition, or intracranial pressure disorder. The most common primary headache disorders are migraine, cluster, and tension-type headache. Neurologists may encounter patients with other lesser-known primary headache disorders in practice. This course focuses on the primary headache syndromes, including their epidemiology, clinical manifestations, differential diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment using case-based scenarios. It includes migraine, tension-type headache, primary stabbing headache, nummular headache, hemicrania continua, hypnic headache, and epicrania fugax. This program complements Introduction to Primary Headache Disorders II: Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias and Other Primary Headaches Including New Daily Persistent Headache, Cough, Exercise, and Thunderclap Headaches, but covers independent topics.
