The Treatment of Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias: An Overview.

J Oral Facial Pain Headache 2019 Winter;33(1):89-104

Trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) are primary headaches that include cluster headache (CH), paroxysmal hemicrania (PH), and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks (SUNHAs) with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT) or cranial autonomic features (SUNA). Hemicrania continua (HC) is another form that has been ascribed to TACs for clinical and pathophysiologic reasons. Cluster headache is the most common of these syndromes, even if comparatively rare, with a lifetime prevalence of around 1 in 1,000. Read More

Primary Headaches.

Dent Clin North Am 2018 Oct 14;62(4):611-628. Epub 2018 Aug 14.

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, 1 Kneeland Street, Suite 601, Boston, MA 02111, USA.

The primary headaches are composed of multiple entities that cause episodic and chronic head pain in the absence of an underlying pathologic process, disease, or traumatic injury. The most common of these are migraine, tension-type headache, and the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. This article reviews the clinical presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of each to help in differential diagnosis. Read More

Cluster Headache and Other Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias.

Authors:
Mark Burish

Continuum (Minneap Minn) 2018 08;24(4, Headache):1137-1156

Purpose Of Review: This article covers the clinical features, differential diagnosis, and management of the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs). The TACs are composed of five diseases: cluster headache, paroxysmal hemicrania, short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT), short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with cranial autonomic symptoms (SUNA), and hemicrania continua.

Recent Findings: New classifications for the TACs have two important updates; chronic cluster headache is now defined as remission periods lasting less than 3 months (formerly less than 1 month), and hemicrania continua is now classified as a TAC (formerly classified as other primary headache).

Secondary (Symptomatic) Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgia.

Ann Indian Acad Neurol 2018 Apr;21(Suppl 1):S57-S69

Department of Neurology, GB Pant Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, New Delhi, India.

Primary trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) are uncommon group of headache disorders. These are defined and diagnosed by the criteria given by the International Classification of Headache Disorders 3β version. Over the past few decades, a number of secondary (symptomatic) cases have been described in the literature with headache features indistinguishable from primary TACs. Read More

Functional Neuroimaging in Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias.

Ann Indian Acad Neurol 2018 Apr;21(Suppl 1):S51-S56

Department of Neurology and Westgerman Headache Center, University of Duisburg-Essen, Essen, Germany.

Functional neuroimaging was able to identify key structures for the pathophysiology of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) including cluster headache, paroxysmal hemicrania, and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing or cranial autonomic features and hemicrania continua. The posterior hypothalamus was the structure most consistently depicted with functional imaging in different states of disease with and without pain. Network-oriented imaging techniques such as resting-state functional resonance imaging were able to show a broader involvement of human trigeminal pain processing in the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of the different TACs, highlighting similarities between this distinct group of primary headache disorders, while also demonstrating the differences in brain activation across these disorders.

Classification of Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgia: What has Changed in International Classification of Headache Disorders-3 Beta?

Authors:
K Ravishankar

Ann Indian Acad Neurol 2018 Apr;21(Suppl 1):S45-S50

The Headache and Migraine Clinic, Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

The term "Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgia (TAC)" was first coined by Goadsby and Lipton[1] to include a group of relatively rare primary headache disorders characterized by moderate to severe, short-lived head pain in the trigeminal distribution with unilateral cranial parasympathetic autonomic features, such as lacrimation, rhinorrhea, conjunctival injection, eyelid edema, and ptosis. In the current International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-3 beta),[2] the TAC group includes cluster headache (CH), paroxysmal hemicrania (PH), short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks (SUNHAs) and their 2 subforms - SUNHAs with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT), SUNHAs with cranial autonomic symptoms (SUNA). Hemicrania Continua (HC) is also now included in the TAC group. Read More

Therapeutic Approaches for the Management of Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias.

Neurotherapeutics 2018 04;15(2):346-360

Danish Headache Centre, Department of Neurology, Rigshospitalet-Glostrup, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia (TAC) encompasses 4 unique primary headache types: cluster headache, paroxysmal hemicrania, hemicrania continua, and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with cranial autonomic symptoms. They are grouped on the basis of their shared clinical features of unilateral headache of varying durations and ipsilateral cranial autonomic symptoms. The shared clinical features reflect the underlying activation of the trigeminal-autonomic reflex. Read More

The pathophysiology of the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias, with clinical implications.

Clin Auton Res 2018 06 23;28(3):315-324. Epub 2017 Sep 23.

Department of Clinical Physiology, Nuclear Medicine and PET, Rigshospitalet-Glostrup, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

The hallmark of primary headaches belonging to the group known as the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias is unilateral headache accompanied by cranial autonomic symptoms. Being relatively rare and poorly understood, they represent a clinical challenge, leading to underdiagnosis and undertreatment. While the headache is the most obvious and disabling symptom, it is only part of a complex symptomatology which hints at the involved pathophysiological mechanisms. Read More

Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block in the Management of Chronic Headaches.

Curr Pain Headache Rep 2017 06;21(6):27

Jefferson Pain Center, Department of Anesthesiology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block has been used by clinicians in the treatment of a variety of headache disorders, facial pain syndromes, and other facial neuralgias. The sensory and autonomic fibers that travel through the SPG provided the scientific rationale for symptoms associated with these head and neck syndromes. Yet, despite the elucidation of this pathogenic target, the optimal method to block its pain-producing properties has not been determined. Read More

The complex interrelations between two paroxysmal disorders: headache and epilepsy.

Neurol Sci 2017 Jun 24;38(6):941-948. Epub 2017 Mar 24.

Child and Adolescent Neuropsychiatry, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.

The interrelations between headache/migraine and epileptic seizures are an interesting topic, still lacking a systematization, which is the objective of the present revision. We organize the general setting on: (a) a distinction between pre-ictal, ictal, post-ictal and inter-ictal headaches, assuming "ictal" as epileptic seizure, and (b) the kind of headache, if it is of migraine type or not. Concerning pre-ictal migraine/headache, the necessity of its differentiation from an epileptic headache presenting as an aura of a seizure is stressed; this is connected with the indefiniteness of the term "migralepsy".

Department of Neurology, Smt. B. K. Shah Medical institute and research Centre, Sumandeep Vidyapeeth, Piparia, Waghodia, Vadodara, 391760, Gujarat, India.

The differential diagnosis of strictly unilateral hemicranial pain includes a large number of primary and secondary headaches and cranial neuropathies. It may arise from both intracranial and extracranial structures such as cranium, neck, vessels, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, teeth, mouth, and the other facial or cervical structure. Available data suggest that about two-third patients with side-locked headache visiting neurology or headache clinics have primary headaches. Read More

Introduction Short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT)-like attacks are rarely reported in the pediatric population and may remain undiagnosed and under-investigated as a result. Case presentation We present a case of a 15-year-old male with intermittent, episodic, right-sided brief headaches most in keeping with SUNCT, initially diagnosed as paroxysmal hemicrania, but with no response to indomethacin. The pain was likewise not responsive to typical migraine treatments or steroids. Read More

Coexistence of contralateral cluster headache and probable paroxysmal hemicrania: a case report.

Springerplus 2016 31;5:396. Epub 2016 Mar 31.

Neurology Section, Department of Medico-Surgical Sciences and Biotechnologies, Sapienza University of Rome, Viale dell'Università 30, 00186 Rome, Italy.

Introduction: The trigeminal autonomic cephalagias (TACs) are short-lasting unilateral headaches associated with autonomic features. Even if coexistence of different ipsilateral TACs in the same patient has been previously reported in few papers, the simultaneous occurrence of contralateral TACs is not described previously.

Case Description: A 50 years old working man complained, at the end of his cluster period, a new TAC, fitting the criteria for probable paroxysmal hemicrania. Read More

University of California, San Francisco, CA; NIHR-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility, Kings College, London, UK.

Cluster headache is a primary headache disorder that can occur in children and adolescents, and is a member of the broader diagnostic group of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. It is characterized by repeated attacks typically lasting between 15 and 180 minutes of severe unilateral side-locked headache with cranial autonomic features. Acute treatment of the cluster attack can include the use of triptans or high-flow oxygen. Read More

The cavernous sinus in cluster headache - a quantitative structural magnetic resonance imaging study.

Cephalalgia 2017 Mar 11;37(3):208-213. Epub 2016 Jul 11.

1 Department of Radiology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Background It has been hypothesized that a constitutionally narrow cavernous sinus might predispose individuals to cluster headache. Cavernous sinus dimensions, however, have never been assessed. Methods In this case-control study, we measured the dimensions of the cavernous sinus, skull base, internal carotid and pituitary gland with high-resolution T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in 25 episodic, 24 chronic and 13 probable cluster headache patients, 8 chronic paroxysmal hemicrania patients and 22 headache-free controls.

Hemicrania continua may respond to repetitive sphenopalatine ganglion block: A case report.

Headache 2016 Mar 1;56(3):573-9. Epub 2016 Mar 1.

Department of Medicine (Neurology), Doylestown Hospital, Doylestown, PA, USA.

Background: Hemicrania continua (HC) is a chronic headache disorder characterized by a continuous, strictly unilateral head pain accompanied by cranial autonomic symptoms, which completely responds to indomethacin; however, few alternative treatment options exist for the patients with this disorder who cannot tolerate indomethacin. Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block has been used for the treatment of various headaches, with the strongest evidence for efficacy in cluster headache.

Case Report: A 52-year-old woman with a 7-year history of HC was evaluated in our clinic for management of her headaches after she had stopped using indomethacin due to a bleeding gastrointestinal ulcer. Read More

The Neuropharmacology of Cluster Headache and other Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias.

Curr Neuropharmacol 2015 ;13(3):304-23

National Institute of Neurology IRCCS C. Mondino Foundation, University of Pavia, via Mondino 2, 27100 Pavia, Italy.

Trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) are a group of primary headaches including cluster headache (CH), paroxysmal hemicrania (PH) and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headache with conjunctival injection and tearing (SUNCT). Another form, hemicrania continua (HC), is also included this group due to its clinical and pathophysiological similarities. CH is the most common of these syndromes, the others being infrequent in the general population. Read More

Do trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias represent primary diagnoses or points on a continuum?

Authors:
Larry Charleston

Curr Pain Headache Rep 2015 Jun;19(6):22

Department of Neurology, University of Michigan, 1914 Taubman Center, 1500 E. Medical Center Dr. SPC 5316, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109-5316, USA,

The question of whether the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) represent primary diagnoses or points on a continuum has been debatable for a number of years. Patients with TACs may present with similar clinical characteristics, and occasionally, TACS respond to similar treatments. Prima facie, these disorders may seem to be intimately related. Read More

When indomethacin fails: additional treatment options for "indomethacin responsive headaches".

Curr Pain Headache Rep 2015 Mar;19(3)

Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston University Medical Center, 72 East Concord Street, C329, Boston, MA, 02118, USA.

Indomethacin has been used for the treatment of headache disorders since the 1960's, shortly after it was introduced as a treatment for pain and joint swelling in rheumatologic conditions. A subgroup of primary headache disorders, often refractory to other pharmacologic treatment such as triptans and the usual non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, was noted to be exquisitely and absolutely responsive to the analgesic effects of indomethacin. These disorders have been better characterized over the past decade and classified into primary headache disorders of paroxysmal hemicrania (PH) and hemicrania continua (HC). Read More
