Mucosal contact point headache is a new type of secondary headache in International Headache Classification-2. At present, this concept is widely quoted in otolaryngology head and neck surgery, and applied in clinical practices. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a common method to treat mucosal contact point headache, but the surgical results were quite different among hospitals. Whether the contact point of nasal cavity is the cause of contact point headache is controversial. This paper summarizes diagnostic criteria, clinical features, etiopathology, epidemiological studies, evaluation method of headache, surgical methods and effect of the disease.
