Sluder syndromeA type of headache/neuralgia characterised by vague pain of the nose and orbit (supplied by the maxillary division of the 5th cranial nerve), with extension to the rest of face and shoulders and neck. While it was attributed to irritation of the sphenopalatine ganglion, it is not regarded as a disease a sui generis and has been subsumed under cluster headache.
