Abstract

Incidence to exposure to sun as a precipitating factor in headaches was evaluated in 263 patients. In 30% exposure to sun was found to trigger attacks of migraine compared to 7% of patients with muscle contraction headaches. Exposure to sun, therefore, is a more frequent precipitating factor in migraine than diet and hormonal changes which are more often mentioned and discussed in the literature.
