Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) affects 1-5.3 per 100,000 individuals annually, with the incidence expected to rise as the U.S. population ages. The symptoms of cSDH are often nonspecific, with headaches being the most common complaint. Other symptoms include weakness, balance and gait problems, and memory problems. A variety of clinical factors must be taken into account in the treatment of cSDH, and the multifaceted treatment paradigms continue to evolve. This review aims to highlight the clinical complexity of cSDH, while presenting a brief historical discussion of cSDH...

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is a genetic disease with characteristic neurofibromas and bony dysplasia that manifest throughout the body, including the craniofacial region. NF-1 patients are known to frequently report chronic pain in areas below the head; however, the matter of pain in the craniofacial region in this patient group has not been handled intensively so far, and studies have mainly focused on headaches. This article comprehensively reviews the related literature and reports a case of an NF-1 patient whose chief complaint was headache and pain in the temporomandibular joint area...

Objective To systematically review the association between migraine and rosacea. Background Migraine is a complex disorder with episodes of headache, nausea, photo- and phonophobia. Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition with flushing, erythema, telangiectasia, papules, and pustules. Both are chronic disorders with exacerbations of symptoms almost exclusively in areas innervated by the trigeminal nerve. Previous studies found an association between these disorders. We review these findings, provide a meta-analysis, and discuss possible pathophysiological commonalities...

BACKGROUND Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common neurosurgical condition that is treated using a cranial burr hole evacuation procedure, but recurrence is common. The use of anticoagulant therapy can increase the risk of developing a recurrent subdural hematoma. We present a challenging case of a patient on long-term anticoagulant therapy following previous aortic and aortic valve surgery who had CSDH with multiple recurrences and was ultimately treated with tranexamic acid as an adjunct to surgery. CASE REPORT A male patient in his mid-sixties presented with a headache and bilateral CSDH...

Subdural-peritoneal (SP) shunting is a simple procedure to treat subdural hygromas; however, several rare complications such as shunt migration exist. A 15-year-old boy presented with headache, nausea, and vomiting, and underwent SP shunting for left frontoparietal chronic subdural effusion. Six weeks later, radiographic examinations revealed total migration of the shunt through the pelvic inlet. The migrated shunt was replaced with a new SP shunt. Four weeks later, radiographic examinations revealed shunt migration into the subdural space...

Background Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation has initial evidence of efficacy in migraine and cluster headache. However, little is known about its role in the management of refractory chronic headaches. Methods We evaluated the preventive and abortive effects of non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation in 41 consecutive patients with refractory primary chronic headaches in an open-label prospective clinical audit. Headache diaries were used to collect clinical information. Those who obtained at least 30% reduction in headache days/episodes after three months of treatment were considered responders and were offered treatment continuation...
