Cyclosporin associated headache.
J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry
Despite successful orthoptic liver transplantation some patients develop a recurrent headache that interferes with their quality of life. To estimate the frequency of this symptom 34 patients who had undergone orthoptic liver transplantation were questioned about the history and character of any headache. Six patients described a recurrent headache typical of migraine only since transplantation. In two patients the pain improved after reduction of cyclosporin dosage and thereby plasma cyclosporin concentration.
