Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The revised International Headache Society classification (2004) represents a very good reference also for ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists and can be largely shared. The authors follow the classification outline and comment on the chapters of ENT interest. The classification leaves unsolved problems and most of them are of ENT competence, such as mucosal contact point headache. It will be a task for ENT specialists to clarify the real role of very hypothetical primary forms frequently assigned to diagnosis without a correct rationale.
