Publicado na 2ª edição de 2011

Headache is one of the most common symptoms in children and adolescents and headache syndromes respond to an important reason for medical consulting. According to the second edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders there are 196 possible headache diagnoses of which 113 have been described in pediatric population. Herein we focus on unusual pediatric headache syndrome. We group them in headaches with migraine features, short-duration headaches with autonomic features, short duration headaches without autonomic features and potentially ominous forms of headaches. Although rare as single entities, providers focusing on pediatric headaches will certainly face some of these headaches and need to be comfortable on the diagnostic approach.
