Abstract

The majority of patients consulting a doctor for headache are generally suffering from a primary headache. Nevertheless, the possibility of it being symptomatic, and sometimes life threatening, must always be in the forefront of the doctor’s mind. Medical history and clinical examination first, and instrumental examinations afterwards, are the keys to a correct diagnosis, and the first steps for correct treatment.
