In this article, we develop an approach to the headache patient based upon pattern of headache. Headache can be acute recurrent, acute, chronic progressive, and chronic nonprogressive. Within each pattern we go through the differential diagnosis, with a focus on secondary causes of headache. Although most patients presenting with headache will end up having migraine, we must be able to recognize the other causes when they present.
