  • Morris LevinEmail author
Part of the Headache book series (HEAD)


A case of a young woman with intractable temporal headaches is presented. Symptoms and signs suggest temporomandibular dysfunction but other aspects of her presentation are confounding. Classification and diagnostic approaches to TMD are discussed, as well as management of the common causes of TMD-related headaches.
