Prof. Giorgio Zanchin, Institute of Neurology, Via Giustiniani 5, 35128 Padova, Italy.


Clusterlike headaches secondary to structural disease have been described. Nevertheless, most of the reports antedate the International Headache Society classification and, indeed, only a few appear to fit its criteria for a diagnosis of cluster headache. We report here a case of sphenoidal sinus aspergilIoma that fully complies with the criteria for cluster headache. This kind of lesion has never been described previously as a cause of a clusterlike headache.
