Pain referral patterns in the head and neck regions can be complex and frustrating for practitioners to diagnose and treat. This clinical case report involves a patient who did not respond to initial medical treatment for headache pain. The pain was found to be referred from a carious and pulpally involved mandibular molar that interestingly responded normal to pulp vitality testing.
