A 12-year-old lady with migraines We ask a specialist how she would manage this case of a girl with recurrent migraines. Case scenario I recently saw a 12-year-old lady who has been having common type migraines typically once every two weeks for the past 8 weeks. Does she need to have any investigations? Could it be appropriate to use the same type of medication within an adolescent that one would use within an adult having recurrent migraines? Commentary Migraine is quite common in childhood and constitutes a large %age of the outpatient practice of general paediatric neurologists.The blog’s founder and editor-in-chief Dr. Neil Shapiro, an associate professor of medicine and associate system director for the internal medicine residency plan at NYU Langone Medical Center, states ‘Your blog was created in the beginning to encourage our housestaff to read on a daily basis. Everyday, everywhere we look-on the wards, in the news, in the clinic we can find doctors discussing and practicing many fascinating areas of medicine. With the blog we hope to capture these moments and therefore inspire physicians both novice and seasoned alike.’.
