Headache as an emergency in children and adolescents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pediatric and adolescence headache is one of the most common causes of access in emergency departments (ED). Primary headache and headache secondary to self-limited conditions are the majority of cases. Secondary life-threatening headaches are less frequent and may be recognized by a careful history and physical examination. The primary objective for ED physicians is to recognize the serious life-threatening conditions requiring immediate medical care among the wide spectrum of headache diagnoses.
