Objective: To know the etiology of Rhinogenic Headache and its management.
Material and Methods: This was a prospective study conducted on 18 patients who were diagnosed as contact point headaches, conducted in the department of ENT, Hayatabad Medical Complex, Peshawar from January 2014 to December
Results: In our study 38% were females and 11% were males. On clinical examination 66% had septal spurs and 27% had enlarge inferior turbinates. The symptoms were relieved by septoplasty and inferior turbinectomy. Two patients after septoplasty and one after turbinectomy were not relieved of the symptoms.
Conclusion: Our experience demonstrates that this is an anatomic problem, no medicine can really help. These headaches can be very difficult to diagnose and as some anatomical nasal abnormalities play a very important role in rhinogenic headache, as long as a precise identification of the anatomical factor can be made. However, surgery can help bring relief from these types of headaches.
