Episodic parieto-occipital idiopathic stabbing headache-like pain: a case report

Abstract

We describe a patient with a variant of idiopathic stabbing headache (ISH). This case differs from ISH by its temporal profile (status-like), its region (extratrigeminal), its lack of association with other types of headache, and the episodic form of pain attacks.
