The International Headache Society Classification of Headache Disorders has been widely accepted as the gold standard for classification of headache. Initially a research tool, this classification is now increasingly used in the daily practice of headache medicine. Accurate diagnosis is a prerequisite to planning a therapeutic approach. The three commentaries here discuss the use of this tool in the setting of primary care, general neurology, and subspecialty headache medicine. As the Section Editor, I hope these perspectives are helpfuL to the reader.
