Abstract

Headache is a common symptom in patients diagnosed with chronic rhinosinusitis. • The diagnosis of primary and secondary headache disorders is important to avoid unnecessary revision surgery. • Headache symptoms attributable to persistent or recurrent rhinologic disease may be addressed surgically if medical therapy has failed. • Headache symptoms secondary to rhinologic disease have shown significant improvement following endoscopic sinus surgery.
