Cluster Headache and other rare headaches

This Thematic Series aims to revitalize scientific attention towards Cluster Headache and Other Rare Headaches from the same TACs group, such as paroxysmal hemicrania, SUNCT, SUNA, hemicrania continua, probable TAC, attempting to create an additional body of robust epidemiological, pathophysiological and therapeutic evidences in order to include TACs in the evaluation of disability of the next Global Burden of Diseases survey.
