In contrast, treatment response is relatively specific and aids in establishing a definitive diagnosis. TACs are often presentations of underlying pathology; all patients should be imaged. The aim of the article is to provide the reader with a broad introduction to, and an overview of, TACs.
The reading list is extensive for the interested reader. Trigeminal autonomic cephalgias TACs are primary headaches with a common clinical phenotype consisting of trigeminal pain with autonomic signs, which may include lacrimation, rhinorrhoea and miosis. There is consistent evidence that patients with TACs continue to suffer from delayed diagnosis and inappropriate treatment, in spite of the involvement of secondary care specialties.
The IHS classification system is indispensable for the clinician and will assist in reading this article; it can be viewed at http: TAC pathophysiology shares certain features and these will be reviewed here.
This section deals with TACs in general, although there are subtle differences between them. The current pathophysiological model attempts to explain the three major features of TACs: The debate over a peripheral versus a central origin of pain is likely to continue.
The predominant factor probably depends on which TAC is being examined, but in primary Aautonomica the cefalfa opinion is that central components prevail. Moreover, certain features are not easily explained by a peripheral mechanism: The distribution of pain in TACs largely implicates activity of the trigeminal and upper cervical nerves. Central to the pathophysiology of neurovascular headaches is the trigeminovascular system; trigeminal nerve activation can explain pain and may initiate some of the autonomic manifestations.
A perivascular neurogenic inflammatory process 8 of the internal carotid artery in its bony canal or increased intraocular pressure within the confines of the eye may lead to pain in cluster headache. Such neuronal activity with neuropeptide release was thought to originate from dilated blood vessels that stimulate trigeminal nociceptors directly.
Trigeminoo hypothesis has been refuted by research findings, including continuing pain even when vasodilation is prevented. Indeed it is interesting to note that many patients with cluster headache complain of pain outside trigeminal dermatomes. Together this may suggest that pain in cluster headache is not solely of trigeminal origin or is central in origin.
Autinomica dysfunction is indicated by ptosis and miosis.
These may be secondary to neuropaxic effects of carotid edema on the sympathetic plexus or may signify a generalized sympathetic dysfunction. Indeed, a dysfunction in the central control of the autonomic system in cluster headache and paroxysmal hemicrania has been proposed.
However, cluster headache may occur with no autonomic signs, and conversely typical cluster headache autonomic signs occur with no pain; 1314 this would suggest that autonomic dysfunction is not a driving force in cluster headache. Attacks of paroxysmal hemicrania and SUNCT may be mechanically activated, often with a short latency, implicating neurogenic transmission.
In humans these are located in the suprachiasmatic nucleus, situated in the anterior part of the hypothalamus dorsal and above the optic chiasm. The ventromedial hypothalamus is also active in nociceptive pathways. Additionally, the hypothalamus has functional connections with the parasympathetic pterygopalatine ganglion and the sensory trigeminal nuclei. In cluster headache, hypothalamic activation by imaging has been inconsistent in appearance, location and laterality. These areas are imaged with what are still rather relatively imprecise implements.
The endocrinology of cluster headache is a fascinating area. Moreover, functions of hypocretin include pain modulation 21 and regulation of the sleep—wake cycle. Hypothalamic regulation of the endocrine system also involves rhythmic and phasic homeostatic modulation of the hypophyseal hormones and melatonin. The principal external stimulus for the rhythmic production of melatonin is light intensity. This input reaches the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus via a direct pathway from the retina.
Studies of melatonin in cluster headache patients found that h production was reduced and its pattern altered during the cluster period compared with normal subjects.
Thus, the hypothalamus is in a prime position to potentially initiate or modulate TACs. Results of deep brain stimulation suggest that the hypothalamus may have a role in terminating cluster headache attacks. Cranial parasympathetic fibers arise in the superior salivatory nucleus and innervate part of the craniofacial structures.
Postganglionic fibres project to specific craniofacial targets such as the lacrimal, nasal mucosa and salivary glands as well as the craniofacial vasculature. Independent parasympathetic activity induces lacrimation and rhinorrhoea as observed in TACs. Painful experimental stimuli in areas innervated by trigeminal nerve divisions 1 and 2 will cause autonomic signs similar to those observed in TACs.
The presence of autonomic signs is consistent across TACs but the intensity and frequencies reported differ see Table 1.
Accompanying signs and treatment response in unilateral headaches with autonomic signs.

SUNA, short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform headache attacks with cranial autonomic features; SUNCT, short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing. Autonomic signs in HC refer to baseline and exacerbation studies. Taken together, current data suggest that autknomica headache and other TACs are conditions whose pathophysiological basis is in the central nervous system CNS that drives the initiation of the clinical phenotype.
The involvement of peripheral mechanisms is unclear. Cluster headache is the archetypal TAC, with severe pain and major autonomic activation. Photograph of a patient with cluster headache during a right-sided painful attack.
Note the ipsilateral ptosis and miosis. Additionally there is obvious ipsilateral lacrimation and rhinorrhoea see upper lip. Reprinted from Benoliel R and Autonpmica Y. Trigeminal autonomic cephalgias TACs. Y Sharav and R Benoliel eds Orofacial pain and headache. Mosby Elsevier, ; pp. A unique feature of cluster headache is the distinctive circadian and circannual periodicity in the episodic form.
Episodic cluster headache commonly occurs at least once daily for a period of weeks, at the same time of day or night. Attacks tend to be shorter and less severe at the beginning and towards the end of each cluster period.
At its initial onset, cluster headache active periods are seasonal, occurring around spring or autumn. Interictal pain may also be present between attacks or between clusters. Up to half of patients with chronic cluster headache report transition to an episodic pattern.

Surprisingly for such a dramatic syndrome, the interval until final diagnosis was 3—6 years: The following summary maintains the essential core criteria as described by the IHS, but is embellished with information gleaned from the literature. Pain location in TACs and migraine. TACs are characterized by orbital and periorbital pain. In paroxysmal hemicrania and hemicrania continua there are large adjacent areas affected.
The two-headed arrow above the diagram indicates side shift, which occurs in specific headache. Frequency in neurovascular headaches and trigeminal neuralgia. The International Headache Society 1 clearly defines pain frequency but there is considerable overlap. The short-lasting headaches trigeminal neuralgia, SUNCT, paroxysmal hemicrania are very frequent more than eight per day, dotted line with considerable overlap. Similarly, the long-lasting headaches overlap in the frequency of attacks.
Trigeminal neuralgia shown in double arrow is often triggered but is usually of high frequency. Duration in neurovascular headaches and trigeminal neuralgia. The International Headache Society 1 clearly defines pain duration but there is considerable overlap. Duration overlap occurs particularly in headaches lasting from 2 minutes to 4 hours; beyond these limits dotted lines diagnosis is relatively limited.
It is important to note that migraines may occasionally last less than 4 hours migraine in double arrow and cluster headache has been reported to last up to 48 hours. Patients with cluster headache demonstrate a significantly greater percentage of obstructive sleep apnoea. Alcohol, even in small amounts, may precipitate cluster headache attacks during active cluster periods, so patients tend to avoid alcohol during active periods. In patients with cluster headache, specific symptoms may occur minutes to days before pain onset.
These may be similar to those experienced by migraineurs and include body numbness, neck pain, irritability, lethargy and sleepiness. Intensity of autonomic signs may be related to pain severity; i.
Symptomatic cluster headache has been described as a result of rare pathologies, including vascular lesions, and even multiple sclerosis. Cluster headache typically appears between the ages of 20 and 29 years 28 and is more common than previously thought.
The genetics of cluster headache are not entirely clear. However, first-degree relatives of patients with cluster headache are 14—48 times and second-degree relatives 2—8 times more likely to have cluster headache than the general population. A combination of patient education, symptomatic treatment and prophylactic regimens are the essential cornerstones of successful treatment in all headaches.
Altitude hypoxemia may trigger an attack during active periods but may be pharmacologically prevented. Depending on the diagnosis, frequency and individual parameters, treatment may be abortive, transitional, prophylactic or surgical. SUNCT, short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform headache attacks with conjunctival injection and tearing. It has traditionally been accepted that patients with cluster headache do not suffer from medication overuse headache.

However, recent reports indicate that this is not the reality for both cluster headache and other TACs, and clinicians should monitor their patients carefully. Remission periods in many patients may increase with time and, beyond the age of 65—75, active cluster headache is rare.
The first reported cases of paroxysmal hemicrania were of a continuous nature and were categorized as chronic paroxysmal hemicrania. The IHS requires at least 20 attacks that meet the criteria outlined. Autonomic signs may occur bilaterally but are more pronounced on the symptomatic side.
The most commonly seen are ipsilateral lacrimation, nasal congestion, conjunctival injection and rhinorrhoea. Paroxysmal hemicrania is rare; its prevalence has been estimated to be 2—20 perMean age at onset is usually 34—41 years, but children aged 6 and adults aged 81 years have been reported with an average illness duration of 13 years.
