Abstract

Headache and facial pain due to diseases of the nose and sinuses are not uncommon in children. However, nasal contact-point associated with headache is relatively uncommon and has unclear etiological significance. We herein report a child having headache with autonomic features and contact-point in the nose, and discuss the difficulties in diagnostic categorization.
