horton's headache

Abrar-Ahmad Zulfiqar, Audrey Fouqué, Xavier Sui Seng, Nadir Kadri, Jean Doucet
Horton disease is difficult to diagnose in the elderly, due to the non-specificity of clinical signs. When evoked in the case of recent headaches, laboratory tests must be carried out to look for signs of inflammation.

BACKGROUND: Inclisiran (ALN-PCSsc) is a long-acting RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutic agent that inhibits the synthesis of proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 (PCSK9), a target for the lowering of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. METHODS: In this phase 1 trial, we randomly assigned healthy volunteers with an LDL cholesterol level of at least 100 mg per deciliter in a 3:1 ratio to receive a subcutaneous injection of inclisiran or placebo in either a single-ascending-dose phase (at a dose of 25, 100, 300, 500, or 800 mg) or a multiple-dose phase (125 mg weekly for four doses, 250 mg every other week for two doses, or 300 or 500 mg monthly for two doses, with or without concurrent statin therapy); each dose cohort included four to eight participants...

BACKGROUND: We examined the influence of catheter ablation and periprocedural anticoagulation regimen on trajectory of migraine in atrial fibrillation patients with or without migraine history. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty patients with (group 1: 64 ± 8 years; men 78%) and 85 (group 2: 61 ± 10 years; men 73%) without migraine history undergoing atrial fibrillation-ablation were enrolled. Migraine status and quality of life were evaluated using standardized questionnaires...

BACKGROUND: Neglected tropical diseases are co-endemic in many areas of the world, including sub Saharan Africa. Currently lymphatic filariasis (albendazole/ivermectin) and trachoma (azithromycin) are treated separately. Consequently, financial and logistical benefit can be gained from integration of preventive chemotherapy programs in such areas. METHODOLOGY/FINDINGS: 4 villages in two co-endemic districts (Kolondièba and Bougouni) of Sikasso, Mali, were randomly assigned to coadministered treatment (ivermectin/albendazole/azithromycin) or standard therapy (ivermectin/albendazole with azithromycin 1 week later)...

We report the case of a 16-year-old girl with a history of idiopathic precocious puberty and normal results on pituitary imaging scan. Ten years later, a new cranial magnetic resonance imaging scan was performed due to worsening of episodes resembling Horton's headache and a lesion suggestive of pituitary bleeding was detected. The headaches diminished with glucocorticoid administration but a severe complication, steroid psychosis, occurred. Surgical treatment and pathological study of the lesion led to the differential diagnosis between craniopharyngyoma and xanthogranuloma of the sella turcica...

OVERVIEW: Oxygen has been a generally accepted treatment method for cluster headache attacks ever since Kudrow (1981) conducted a controlled trial showing that oxygen was equally or even more effective than ergotamine injections. PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to provide a historical perspective of oxygen treatment in cluster headache and to find the origin of this treatment. Oxygen for cluster headache was first described by Horton in 1952 and for migraine patients in 1940 by Alvarez...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) (or Horton's disease) is a systemic disease affecting the vessels of medium and large sizes. The incidence increases with age (the disease develops rarely before age 50) and the etiology remains unknown. Clinical manifestations may vary (including asthenia, temporal headache, visual disturbances, etc.) and GCA can potentially lead to dramatic consequences (permanent loss of vision). Although some anomalies in the investigations may help in the diagnosis of GCA, research and confirmation of the diagnosis of GCA may be difficult, especially when the symptoms presented by patients are spread out in time and appear to be nonspecific at first...

BACKGROUND: Ocular manifestations of giant cell arteritis are anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (AION) or retinal vessel occlusion. Rarely, it can also cause choroidal infarction or tonic pupil. METHODS: Five patients with the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis and rare ocular manifestations are described. The analysis comprises: age, sex, best corrected visual acuity, anterior eye segment, fundus findings, fluorescein angiography (FAG), C-reactive protein, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and biopsy of the temporal artery...

An 84-year-old woman presented with bilateral visual loss that had appeared 3 days previously. Split lamp examination showed bilateral corneal edema with normal intraocular pressure. The patient complained of headache and vomiting, and finally collapsed. Elevated levels of inflammation markers led to the suspicion of an inflammatory disease. After investigation for internal or neurological diseases, a biopsy of the temporal artery was performed. Giant cell arteritis (Horton's disease) was found, and steroid therapy was begun...

INTRODUCTION: Horton's disease is the most common vasculitis of elder people. Several neurological complications are reported, but pachymeningitis is exceptional. OBSERVATION: A 71-year-old patient who presented headache, hyperesthesia of the scalp, weight loss with a biological inflammatory syndrome and meningeal thickening on MRI. The diagnosis of pachymeningitis related to Horton's disease was retained. The patient was treated by corticosteroids with a good clinical, biological and radiological course after 22 months...
