Abstract

Cluster headache with aura is rare. The authors retrospectively reviewed 101 cluster headache patient charts at the Jefferson Headache Center. Six patients had an associated aura, five visual and one olfactory, lasting 5 to 120 minutes. Only one had migraine (without aura). Auras always occurred with or were followed by a severe cluster headache. Two patients were related.
