Over the past 10–15 years there has been a significant increase in the understanding of migraine and tension headache in children but there is currently no single source of current information for paediatric neurologists and paediatricians. In this book an international team of experts in the headache area addresses that gap and provides an extensive and detailed review of the recent findings in migraine and tension headache as well as headaches caused by underlying neurological disorders. They give an up-to-date assessment of the causes of childhood headache and better definitions and criteria for diagnosis, pointing the way to important future areas of research. This book, with its evidence-based plans of management and guidelines for investigations, will be essential reading for all clinicians treating headache in children.
