Total Relief of Cluster Headache after Botulinum Toxin Injection: Case Report - Abstract
A case of total relief of chronic cluster headache (CH) in a young male adult is reported on. 60 then 150U Botox* were used in an 18 year old male patient, presenting with chronic cluster headache, recalcitrant to conventional preventive treatment (Verapamil). Total relief, persisting after the second injection, was confirmed, and tolerability was excellent. Even if the pathophysiology of CH is not completely understood, use of botulinum toxin in such a condition would seem to be of therapeutic interest.
