Abstract

Headache is common in adolescents and children and it is a frequent reason to seek medical care for pediatric patients. The Global Burden of Disease study found that the headache disorders are the second-leading cause of disability globally in 2017 [1]. In children (age<7 years) headaches are slightly less common in young girls than boys but this ratio begins to change around the time of puberty, where the prevalence of headache is significantly lower in men than in women. In adolescence, 20% of boys and 27% of girls describe frequent or severe headaches, and 5% of boys and 8% of girls have had a migraine in the past year. In adults, over 60% of men and 80% of women have had a headache, and 6% of men and 15% of women report having had a migraine in the past year [2].
