Quand référer aux urgences un patient présentant une céphalée ?

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2010, vol. 6, no. 259, p. 1526-9
Abstract Secondary headaches are rare though potentially severe. A systematic search of red flags helps to suspect headaches of secondary origin that require further urgent investigation. Main red flags are: sudden onset, exceptionally severe headache, new headache in patient over 50, vomiting or syncope, focal neurological sign or neck stiffness, recent trauma, uncommon headache during pregnancy or anticoagulant therapy, suspicion of glaucoma.
