Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 158

Over the past 10-15 years there has been a significant increase in the understanding of migraine and tension headache in children but there is currently no single source of current information for paediatric neurologists and paediatricians. In this book an international team of experts in the headache area addresses that gap and provides an extensive and detailed review of the recent findings in migraine and tension headache as well as headaches caused by underlying neurological disorders. They give an up-to-date assessment of the causes of childhood headache and better definitions and criteria for diagnosis, pointing the way to important future areas of research. This book, with its evidence-based plans of management and guidelines for investigations, will be essential reading for all clinicians treating headache in children.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles Kantrow, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book reviews that which is known about childhood headaches. The authors provide insight into diagnosis, treatment, pathophysiology, epidemiology and prognosis in children with headaches. Most important, it also points out what is not known in these areas. Each chapter is written by a different headache expert.
Purpose: The material is presented as a beginning to an understanding of what is known and not known about headaches in children. This is done in chapter format to describe types of headaches, treatment, pathophysiology, epidemiology, and prognosis. It is a successful beginning to better understanding headaches in children. The book, while not large, does review what is currently understood about childhood headaches.
Audience: The audience is meant to be pediatric neurologists and general practitioners. It appears to meet the need for providing a basis for understanding and treating childhood headaches for both neurologists and general practitioners.
Features: The book covers all aspects of childhood headaches from epidemiology and pathophysiology to diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. It makes use of a number of studies to point out what is, and is not, known in these areas. This is the book's strength and weakness. It defines the limitations of our ability to classify and effectively treat childhood headaches. It is a beginning to better study and expand our understanding of this common problem.
Assessment: This book provides a useful perspective for the physician caring for children with headaches, especially regarding the limitations of our understanding and treatment of this common ailment.
