Abstract

Two hundred fifteen consecutive patients with cerebrovascular events were evaluated prospectively for the incidence and characteristics of headache. Of 163 patients able to communicate, headache occurred in 29% with bland infarcts, 57% with parenchymal hemorrhage, 36% with transient Lschemic attacks and 17% with lacunar infarcts. Patients with a history of recurrent throbbing headache were significantly more likely to have headache, usually throbbing in quality, during the present illness. Women developed headache significantly more often than men. Headache began prior to the vascular event in 60% of patients and at its onset in 25%. The quality, onset and duration of the headache varied widely among patients. Headache in cerebrovascular disease is common, though neither its occurrence nor characteristics predict lesion type or location. Though the pathogenesis of the headache is unknown, its association with prior throbbing headache suggests that similar factors may ope rate in both.
