Abstract

Cluster headache is a unique primary headache disorder characterized by unilateral severe orbital pain with ipsilateral autonomic symptoms. Symptomatic cluster headache can be caused by variable diseases, such as cerebral aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, cerebral venous thrombosis, carotid dissection, pituitary tumor, and meningioma. We report a 33-year-old woman with parasellar meningioma mimicking cluster headache. After Novalis stereotactic radiosurgery, pain attacks disappeared.
