Different Corneal Indentation Pulse Pattern In Cluster Headache And Migraine
Published 1972 · Medicine
IN A i z E c E m COMMUNICATION,^ an increase in corneal indentation pulse (CIP) amplitudes and intraocular pressure was demonstrated in a female patient during pain attacks of cluster headache. The alterations were most pronounced on the symptomatic side. The associntion of increased CIP amplitudes and an abrupt increase in intraocular pressure strongly points to a vasodilatation in the pulsating part of the intraocular vascular bed during attacks of cluster headache. In the present work, we have endeavored to substantiate this observation. Similar studies have not been carried out in migraine cases. The second aim of the present study has, therefore, been to compare migraine and cluster headache patients in this respect. The point is brought out that the CIP amplitude pattern differs significantly during attacks of cluster headache and migraine.
