HEADACHE IN CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENCE: CLINICAL AND LABORATORY ASPECTS (ABSTRACT)*. THESIS. CAMPINAS, 1998.

 

ABRAM TOPCZEWSKI **

Seventy-two children and adolescents, 3-18 years old, with headache complaint were seen in walk-in clinic. After neurological examination they were submitted to laboratory exams, electroencephalogram, CT scan, SPECT and psychological evaluation.

The CT scan and the SPECT showed abnormal results in 16.67% and 29.41% patients respectively. These findings provide that the CT scan and the SPECT have a special place in the evaluation of children and adolescents with headache.

The psychological tests for emotional status were performed and were abnormal in 54.6% patients. We consider that the psychological tests have to be performed in patients with headache, especially with migraine.

KEY WORDS: headache, migraine, child, adolescent, TC scan, SPECT, psychological tests.
