Hemicrania continua (HC) is a rare headache syndrome, typically responsive to indomethacin, although patients resistant to this drug have been described. Few treatment alternatives have been proposed in the literature. We here report a patient with HC whose initial excellent response to indomethacin faded but then responded remarkably to verapamil.
