Hemicrania continua (HC)-like headache has been described with various intra- and extracranial pathologies. We describe a female patient with HC-like headache of 6-year duration with an epidermoid in cerebello-pontine angle, in whom indomethacin was successfully withdrawn after surgery. We also review the reports of various other symptomatic HC and compare with primary HC.
