EHMTI-0112. Association of age at onset of migraine with family history of migraine in children attending a pediatric headache clinic

Abstract

Results Mean age of the cohort was 11.69±3.49 years, and mean frequency of headache per month, 13.68±11.26. Mean age at migraine onset in patients with a negative parental history was10.48±3.39 years. Mean age at migraine onset in patients with a history of only paternal migraine was 9.29±3.64 years; with a history of only maternal migraine, 8.85±3.76 years; and with a history of migraine in both parents, 7.31±3.21 years (p=0.0001).The duration of migraine attacks (in hours) was significantly longer in patients with any family member with migraine than in those with no family history(p=0.026).
