Özet

Introduction: Neurological problems are common in the elderly, especially in the emergency unit. Headache is one of them, and it can be the first and sometimes the only symptom of a serious disease. We aimed to retrospectively examine the patients admitted to the emergency room with a complaint of headache only, and to collect data for epidemiological studies.
