Abstract

The earliest descriptions of cluster headache date back to the seventeenth century, but it was only from the twentieth century that knowledge of this disorder began to spread thanks to the publication of reports on large case series. Its present name was introduced in 1952, but not until the 1970s was it considered a separate clinical entity from migraine.
