Worsening of SUNCT syndrome after frontal head trauma


SUNCT syndrome is a rare condition characterized by a short-lasting periorbital pain associated with autonomic symptoms. In this paper, a 50-year-old man with SUNCT syndrome is presented. Preexisting SUNCT syndrome in this patient worsened following mild frontal head trauma. Despite various medication regimes and trigeminal nerve block, complete recovery was not achieved at the end of one year follow-up period.
