A case report: Cluster headache in childhood
MetadataShow full item record
Cluster headache (CH) is one of the most severe types of headache, characterized by periods of recurrent attacks of sudden and intense pain, localized in the orbital or temporal region, and associated with ipsilateral autonomic symptoms and signs. The mean age of onset of CH is in the late third decade. Only few cases of childhood-onset (>14 years) CH have been reported in the literature. In this article, clinical manifestation and treatment options are discussed especially concerning the rationale of use of prednisolone in childhood with cluster headache.
