Abstract

The authors report on their experience in the use of local infiltration of the greater occipital nerve by means of steroid and local anaesthetics for symptomatic treatment of patients suffering from different types of headache. All patients reported remarkable pain relief to this headache. There were observed no side effects during and after treatment. Authors discussed pathophysiology, simplicity of application, low costs of treatment and good results obtained with this procedure that indicate the wide and routine application of this method in general practice and in headache centers.
