3rd International Conference on Neuro-Oncology and Brain Tumor

Pediatric Headache :

Pediatric Headache is a common reason for pediatric patients to seek medical care. Headaches can result from any of a number of causes, including genetic predisposition, trauma, an intracranial mass, a metabolic or vascular disease, or sinusitis. Recognition that pediatric headaches can result from primary and secondary causes is crucial to their treatment.

Facts about headaches:

A headache is pain or discomfort in the head or face area. Headaches can be single or recurrent in nature, and localized to one or more areas of the head and face.

Facts about headaches in children:
        Forty percent (or more) of all children have had a headache by the age of 7.
       Among 7-year-olds, approximately 4 percent have frequent headaches.
       By the age of 15, 75 percent of children have had a headache.

       Only one child in 40,000 is found to have a brain tumor causing the headache.
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a term used often to describe those who have abnormalities of body movement, balance and posture occurring from abnormal neurological processes. The mechanism(s) that causes CP occurs more frequently during prenatal life as the fetus develops, from infections, abnormalities of the placenta, fetal stroke, genetic abnormalities, developmental abnormalities of the fetal brain, trauma to the mother, premature delivery, and other causes, or after birth from inborn metabolic disorders, epilepsy, neurotransmitter disorders, and other causes.
Here are 6 interesting facts you need to know about CP:
·                  Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common motor disability in childhood.
·                  CP affects 1 in 500 newborns.
·                  CP is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone and or posture.
·                  Globally, over 17 million people have CP.
·                  Symptoms of CP vary from person to person.
·                  There is no known cure for CP, but treatment can improve the lives of those who have the condition. It is important to begin a treatment program as early as possible.
