Headache & Pain
Posttraumatic headache is common following head or neck trauma. The International Headache Society defines posttraumatic headache as “acute” if headache develops within the first 7 days after the accident and resolves within the first 3 months and “persistent” if headache lasts longer than 3 months. Therapeutic treatment of posttraumatic headache should be individualized and comply with the treatment options for the underlying or accompanying primary headache disorders it resembles.

The International Classification of Headache Disorders version 3-beta classifies recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy as a cranial neuralgia. Although a clinical diagnosis, it may show enhancement of the involved cranial nerve on post-gadolinium MRI. The third cranial nerve is the most frequently involved nerve in recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy. Episodes of recurrent painful ophthalmoplegic neuropathy appear spontaneously and then resolve without treatment.

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis is a rare systemic vasculitis associated with eosinophilia and asthma and is characterized by a poor prognosis if left untreated. Vasculitic infiltrates are responsible for multiple organ involvement, including lung, gut, heart, kidney, nervous system, and skin. The neurologic picture is mainly of a mononeuropathy multiplex evolving to a polyneuropathy pattern, but cerebral hemorrhages or infarcts may also occur.
