Abstract

Cervicogenic headache is a little-known clinical condition whose true importance has only recently been recognized. A number of causes may lie at the basis of the onset of headache (symptomatic cervicogenic headache). However, despite exhaustive attempts, sometimes it is not possible to identify a clear cause responsible for the onset of the syndrome (primitive cervicogenic headache). The genesis of symptomatic cervicogenic headaches sometimes may be easy to identify as a result of a close, pre-existing, cause-effect relationship (i.e. trauma). On other occasions it may be much more laborious to pinpoint the pathology responsible for headache (some cranio-cervical anomalies, etc.). Clinically, it is necessary to perform a thorough preliminary clinical and anamnestic evaluation which can orient subsequent investigations to achieve a diagnosis in the least time possible with the minimum discomfort to the patient and his relatives, not to mention lower costs for society.
