Headache is the bane of many patients' lives, yet the number of physicians competent in the diagnosis and management of headache is disappointingly small. This is not due to an absence of available knowledge or scientific inquiry; the old aphorism, “Choose a common problem in medicine and you'll find that little is known about it,” no longer applies to the field of headache.

In the past decade, important new observations on the pathophysiology and treatment of headache have been reported from centers around the world.
