Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: Studies evaluating the magnetic resonance imaging findings in headache cases mostly focus on migraine and tension headache. In the current study, we aimed to evaluate the possible differences in the magnetic resonance imaging reports between the common headache types presenting with normal neurological findings.
Materials and Methods: The magnetic resonance imaging findings of 170 patients aged between 18-45 years that presented with the complaints of headache were retrospectively evaluated. The patients with headaches were divided into the following groups: migraine, tension headache, medication overuse headache, and other headaches (cluster headache, hemicrania continua, paroxysmal hemicrania, trigeminal neuralgia), each consisting of 30 cases. Also, a control group was formed with 50 patients without a headache. The extracerebral, major and minor intracranial abnormalities were noted for all groups. The χ2 test was used to compare the data between the groups.
Results: When the patients with headaches were evaluated, clinically silent brain infarct was detected as a major intracranial abnormality only in one patient with trigeminal neuralgia. The incidence of minor abnormalities was higher in the headache groups compared to the controls (p0.05).
Conclusion: There was no significant difference between the headache types and the MRI findings. Increased white matter hyperintensity was present in patients with headaches, and especially those with migraine compared to the controls.
Keywords: Primary headache; migraine; tension headache; medication overuse.
