Abstract


Headache is one of the most common complaints presenting to primary care physicians, as well as neurologists. Although the vast majority of headache syndromes are benign, clinicians are faced with the crucial task of differentiating benign headache disorders from potentially life threatening headache. Given the broad range of disorders that present with headache, a focused and systematic approach is necessary to facilitate the prompt diagnosis and treatment of various kinds of head pain.
