EHC 2023 | The epidemiology of headaches in school-age children

Prab Prabhakar, MBBS, FRCPCH, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, dispels the myth that school-age children do not experience headaches as severely as adults. Referencing various surveillance studies and meta-analyses conducted since 1955, he notes a trend of 10% of children experiencing migraine and 60% reporting some form of headache. This is supported by recent findings from a 2023 study by Onofri et al., which reviewed 5000 papers to confirm a prevalence of 11% for migraine and a pooled prevalence of over 60% for any primary headache in children and adolescents. Notably, tension-type headaches affect 2 out of 10, and chronic daily headaches occur in 1 in 100 school-age children. This interview took place during the 7th European Headache Congress (EHC) 2023.
