Concha bullosa (CB) is one the most common anatomic variation of sinonasal anatomy and represents by pneumatization of the turbinate. Unilateral not-sideshifted continuous presence with autonomic features of both concha bullosa related headache and hemicrania continua make them easily confused in clinical practice. Rhino-sinus headaches are usually misdiagnosed with primary headaches because of their anatomically close relationship. Neurologists should be aware of the CB diagnosis in differential diagnosis of patients suffering from unilateral continuous pain.
