Migraine Precursors In The Pediatric Population
Pediatric Headache: Evaluation through Treatment for the General Provider
Migraine precursors have been increasingly described in children who have a family history of migraine and may also develop migraine headaches in the future. Abdominal migraine and cyclical vomiting syndrome are the most well described and typically may require both abortive and preventative treatment. Benign paroxysmal vertigo of childhood and benign paroxysmal torticollis are less common, but their clinical findings are important to the general practitioner. Finally, infantile colic has been more recently studied and identified as a migraine precursor. The goal of this chapter is to discuss the clinical characteristics, diagnostic criteria, and potential treatment options for each migraine precursor.
