Abstract

Headache is a common symptom in children and adolescence. In this retrospective analysis, we interviewed a population of young patients who were arrived to our observation 10 years before, in order to: (1) determine if the first diagnosis was still adequate and (2) which percentage of these young patients developed chronic forms (more than 15 days/month) from episodic forms. One hundred and seventy-seven patients suffering from different forms of headache were contacted and interviewed. The original diagnosis was confirmed in all the population of patients and the percentage of chronic forms developed from episodic forms was not significant. From this retrospective study, it does not seem the evolution of episodic forms in young age is necessarily a chronic form in adult as this depends from other behavioural or biological or environmental factors.
