Keywords: сervicogenic headache, spondilography, transcranial doppler sonograhty, brainstem auditory evoked response
AbstractCervicogenic headache (CH) is very frequent of headache in drildren and аdolescent. Diagnostic criteria of CH: mainly pain in the field of neck and occiput; pain increases during movements in the neck; changes of muscular tonus and tension and density of tissue are marked. Pathology of the cervical spine is defined with X-ray methods of investigation. 223 patients from 7 to 18 years of age were examined, 173 from them had CH and signs of myofascial pain syndrom, caused by natal cervical injury, and 50 were healthy volunteers. Clinical examination, manual diagnosis of trigger points, roentgenography of the cervical spine, transcranial doppler sonograhty (TDS), brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) were performed. Natal cervical trauma is realized into cervi- cogenic headache due to different pathogenetic mechanisms: vascular, muscular, neurogenic with involvement of segmental and suprasegmental structures of the cervical spine. The principal task of paediatric neurologist is to define main pathogenetic links and recommendation adequate treatment.
