Özet

Objective: Cervicogenic headache (CH) is a relatively common form of headache arising from structures of the neck. The mechanisms underlying pain stimulation were not fully clarified yet. To our knowledge, there is no study investigating the relationship between CH and oxidative stress. In this Study, we aimed to measure malondialdehyde (MDA) levels during headache and headache-free period in CH patients and to assess the importance of lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress in CH pathogenesis.
