Author information

Department of Neurology, University Hospital Essen, Essen, Germany.


A population-based sample of 6,000 inhabitants of the city of Essen in Germany was screened using a standard questionnaire for possible cluster headache (CH). Fifty-six percent responded (N = 3336, 50.5% of them women, mean age 44.7 +/- 12.7 years). All suspected cases (N = 182) were interviewed by a neurologist. Four subjects with CH (three men) were identified. The 1-year prevalence of CH was estimated to be 119/100,000 (95% confidence interval 3, 238/100,000).
