Current perspectives on the development and treatment of chronic daily headache in children and adolescents.

Pain Manag 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, 2411 Holmes Street, Kansas City, MO 64110, USA.

Headache disorders subsumed under the term chronic daily headache (CDH), including chronic migraine, chronic tension-type headache and new daily persistent headache, affect up to 4% of the pediatric population and can be highly disabling and challenging to effectively treat. Although historically the knowledge base about this group of headache disorders in children primarily was derived from clinical observation and extrapolation from adult studies, over the past several years there have been important research findings relevant to the development and management of pediatric CDH that can help inform clinical practice. The intent of this paper is to provide a focused review on recent empirical work done on pediatric CDH and suggest avenues for future work. Read More

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 01 24;13(1):e0007101. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Souro SANOU, Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.

Background: Individuals diagnosed with neurocysticercosis often present with epilepsy and sometimes with progressively worsening severe chronic headaches (WSCH). While cross-sectional associations between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and epilepsy have been reported, few large scale studies have been conducted in West Africa and none have measured the association between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and headaches. This study aimed at filling these knowledge gaps by estimating the strength of the cross-sectional association between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and the prevalence of epilepsy and WSCH in 60 villages of Burkina Faso, West Africa.

"Headache in operated isolated sagittal synostosis."

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Background: This study investigates the relationship between headache and the occurrence of signs associated with intracranial hypertension (ICH) such as ophthalmic signs, restricted skull growth and a vertex bulge in children who were operated for sagittal synostosis.

Methods: A total of 94 patients (aged 6-18 years) with sagittal synostosis were asked to indicate the headache frequency. Based on their age at referral, the patients had undergone either a fronto-biparietal remodeling (FBR) or an extended strip craniotomy (ESC). Read More

Oral H1 antihistamines as 'add-on' therapy to topical treatment for eczema.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Jan 22;1:CD012167. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Medical Sociology, Institute of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: The symptoms of eczema can lead to sleeplessness and fatigue and may have a substantial impact on quality of life. Use of oral H1 antihistamines (H1 AH) as adjuvant therapy alongside topical agents is based on the idea that combining the anti-inflammatory effects of topical treatments with the blocking action of histamine on its receptors in the skin by H1 AH (to reduce the principal symptom of itch) might magnify or intensify the effect of treatment. Also, it would be unethical to compare oral H1 AH alone versus no treatment, as topical treatment is the standard management for this condition. Read More

Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging of the upper trapezius muscles - assessment of myofascial trigger points in patients with migraine.

J Headache Pain 2019 Jan 18;20(1). Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Pediatric Neurology and Developmental Medicine and LMU Center for Children with Medical Complexity, Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital, LMU - University Hospital, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Lindwurmstr. 4, 80337, Munich, Germany.

Background: Research in migraine points towards central-peripheral complexity with a widespread pattern of structures involved. Migraine-associated neck and shoulder muscle pain has clinically been conceptualized as myofascial trigger points (mTrPs). However, concepts remain controversial, and the identification of mTrPs is mostly restricted to manual palpation in clinical routine. Read More

Delayed Presentations to Emergency Departments of Children With Head Injury: A PREDICT Study.

Ann Emerg Med 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia; Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia; Department of Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Study Objective: Existing clinical decision rules guide management for head-injured children presenting 24 hours or sooner after injury, even though some may present greater than 24 hours afterward. We seek to determine the prevalence of traumatic brain injuries for patients presenting to emergency departments greater than 24 hours after injury and identify symptoms and signs to guide management.

Methods: This was a planned secondary analysis of the Australasian Paediatric Head Injury Rule Study, concentrating on first presentations greater than 24 hours after injury, with Glasgow Coma Scale scores 14 and 15. Read More

The impact of imperfect screening tools on measuring the prevalence of epilepsy and headaches in Burkina Faso.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 01 17;13(1):e0007109. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, College of Public Health, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States of America.

Background: Epilepsy and progressively worsening severe chronic headaches (WSCH) are the two most common clinical manifestations of neurocysticercosis, a form of cysticercosis. Most community-based studies in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) use a two-step approach (questionnaire and confirmation) to estimate the prevalence of these neurological disorders and neurocysticercosis. Few validate the questionnaire in the field or account for the imperfect nature of the screening questionnaire and the fact that only those who screen positive have the opportunity to be confirmed.

[Aura without migraine or Alice in Wonderland syndrome: Pediatric clinical case].

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 02;117(1):e34-e36

Sección de Pediatría, Hospital "Francisco de Borja", Gandía, Valencia, España.

Migraine with aura in children is often reported, typical aura without headache is reported sometimes, but persistent aura and Alice in Wonderland syndrome is exceptionally reported. We present a case corresponding to the last one mentioned in a 6-year-old patient who had at least two episodes with the typical characteristics of aura without migraine before developing more frequently the complete clinical picture of aura and subsequently headache. The complementary studies systematically done to the patient were normal and she improved with conventional therapy. Read More

Rhinogenic headache in pediatric and adolescent patients: an evidence-based review.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ.

Background: Although some causes of rhinogenic headache, such as acute sinusitis, have clear diagnostic criteria, others, such as "sinus headache" and mucosal contact points, are more nebulous. Misdiagnosis of these entities and primary headaches may result in unnecessary medical or surgical treatment. The purpose of this systematic review is to delineate current understanding of diagnosis and treatment of rhinogenic headaches, including sinus and mucosal contact point headaches, in children.
