Abstract : Headaches are one of the leading complaints in cervical migraine. Along with a careful anamnesis, these characteristic pains should suggest the presence of cervical migraine. They start in the cervicooccipital area, most often on one side, and spread to the sinciput, the ipsilateral temple and forehead. Very important is their association with the rotation of the head. They become stronger at night and in the morning after sleep. Sometimes debrillitating vomiting occurs at the peak of these headaches. Such a picture of the disease often leads to the suspicion of a tumor or arachnoiditis in the brain. An analysis of the evolutionary course of cervical migraine is useful. Thus, headaches over a long period of time were the only symptoms of the ailment in 87.3% of the patients. Diagnosis is difficult at this stage of the disease. Consequently, certain headaches of 'undetermined origin' can in fact be due to cervical migraine with an incompletely developed symptomatology.
