OBJECTIVE: The etiology and frequency of headache complaint were examined in patients diagnosed with idiopathic Parkinsonís disease.
METHODS: 60 patients diagnosed with idiopathic Parkinsonís disease in policlinic and a healthy control group of 100 people of similar age and sex were included in the study.
RESULTS: Headache was found in 26 of the patients (43,3%) with idiopathic Parkinsonís disease. There was not a significant difference between the ages of patients with and without headache (p=0,1). The duration of the disease was significantly longer in the patients without headache when compared to those with headache (p=0,02).
CONCLUSION: The frequency of headache in patients with idiopathic Parkinsonís disease is not higher than the healthy population.

Keywords: Parkisonís disease, headache, tension-type headache
