We review the current state of knowledge regarding headache and brain tumors. The epidemiology of this clinically relevant area is highlighted along with general clinical features of headache disorders seen in brain tumor patients. Some rarer clinical presentations are noted, particularly in relationship to the newly described trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias, as well as the relationships of headache to pituitary tumors and paroxysmal and positional headaches. Headaches as a result of brain tumor therapy are noted, as is the important area of treatment of headaches in patients with central nervous system neoplasms of a primary or secondary nature.
