Abstract

The term "chronic daily headache" (CDH) is used to describe a patient who suffers from recurrent headache, at an average frequency of 15 days per month without an underlying serious medical condition. CDH, sometimes referred to as chronic non-progressive headache, was described in adults by Mathew et al. in 1987. Estimating the incidence and prevalence of this disorder has been difficult, because universally agreed criteria regarding the classification of CDH in children and adolescents have not been reached. This condition is a source of concern and disability both for the patient as well as their family. CDH may be associated with comorbid anxiety or depression, resulting in a tremendous amount of dysfunction for the youngster and the family.
