PIOVESAN, Elcio Juliato; KOWACS, Pedro André  y  WERNECK, Lineu Cesar. S.U.N.C.T. syndrome: report of a case preceded by ocular trauma. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1996, vol.54, n.3, pp. 494-497. ISSN 0004-282X.

Report of case of Short lasting, Unilateral, Neuralgiform headache, associated to Conjuntival injection and Tearing (S.U.N.C.T. syndrome) preceded by ipsilateral ocular trauma. We are not aware of any other report of such association. Until the pathophysiology of the S.U.N.C.T. syndrome becomes completely clarified, the relationship between the preceding ocular trauma and the occurrence of the clinical manifestations remains speculative. Clinical, pathophysiological and therapeutic aspects of the S.U.N.C.T. syndrome are reviewed.

Palabras clave : SUNCT syndrome; short-lasting headache; vascular headache; ocular trauma.
