Headache is a common complaint in pediatric office practices as well as in children presenting to emergency departments. Children who complain of headache usually are brought to medical attention by their parents, who seek reassurance that the headaches are not a sign of a serious illness. The etiologies of headache range from school problems to brain tumors. A history taking, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic testing will enable to distinguish primary headaches from those of a secondary etiology. The clinical, neuroimaging, and laboratory evaluation of the child with headache are reviewed here.
