Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system associated with longitudinally extensive myelitis and optic neuritis. It is characterized by relapses that lead to blindness and paralysis sequelaes. But, this is rare disease; therefore high clinical suspicion for a correct diagnosis and proper examinations are not easy. However, early diagnosis is essential to prevent sequelae. We report the case of NMO with headache. A 30-year male patient who suffered headache visited our pain clinic because of aggravated pain despite treatment. The cause of the pain was revealed as NMO by more detailed previous history and examination.
