This chapter reviews the clinical features and treatment options for primarily the nonmigrainous primary headaches and a few commonly encountered secondary headaches. Differences between the presentations of these headaches can be subtle and their recognition is important, as many times the treatment options vary. The subtleties in diagnosis, differentials, workup, and treatment options will be reviewed and elucidated in this chapter.
