Hemicrania Continua With Onset at an Early Age
Abstract:The authors describe the case of an adolescent who had suffered from unilateral continuous headache since she was 8 years old. Treatment with indomethacin 50 mg/day promptly relieved the pain which had affected her for the previous 9 years. To the best of our knowledge, this is the earliest onset of hemicrania continua reported.
