We describe 2 patients with cluster headache attacks associated with a dissection of the ipsilateral internal carotid artery at the extra–intracranial passage. These cases highlight the need for extensive neuroradiological investigation in cluster headache patients when atypical features are present. We also performed a PubMed search to review the current literature data about this association.
