Tension-type headache (TTH) is the most prevalent primary headache. Chronic TTH (CTTH), the most serious form of TTH, is refractory, with a high socio-economic burden. Research studies have shown patients with migraine often had cognitive impairment, but few studies have focused on the cognition in CTTH patients. In the present study, we assumed that patients with CTTH also have cognitive impairments, which are modulated by the neuroendocrine state. Participants were recruited, including CTTH patients and healthy controls...

PREMISE: Tension-type headache (TTH) is the most prevalent form of primary headache in the general population but paradoxically the least studied headache. PROBLEM: In this article, the epidemiology and diagnostic challenges of TTH are presented and discussed. The typical features and differential diagnosis of TTH are highlighted and the situations more likely to raise doubts are discussed. POTENTIAL SOLUTION: A structured approach to the patient and a better comprehension of the very frequent coexistence of migraine and medication overuse headache in the clinical population are emphasized...

Fundagül Bilgiç, İbrahim Erhan Gelgör
INTRODUCTION: Malocclusion is one etiological factor of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This study investigates the prevalence of TMD and the relationship between TMD and the type of occlusion. STUDY DESIGN: A sample of 923 children (463 girls and 460 boys, ages 7-12 years old) was grouped not only by chronological age but also by gender. The information was collected on functional occlusion (anterior and lateral sliding, interferences), dental wear, mandibular mobility (maximal opening, deflection, deviation), and temporomandibular joint and muscular pain recorded by palpation...

REVIEW
Alina Masters-Israilov, Matthew S Robbins
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) classically features a clinical presentation that includes longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis and optic neuritis. However, many other pathognomonic phenomena have more recently been described in patients diagnosed with NMO, including intractable hiccups, vomiting, and painful tonic spasms, but less has been reported regarding the relationship between NMO and headache. Though headache is well established as both a symptom and comorbidity of multiple sclerosis (MS), it has been much less described thus far in the NMO literature and warrants more careful evaluation...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of medical symptoms in aviators has not been described in the medical literature. METHODS: An anonymous questionnaire was handed to all Israeli Air Force aviators who went through the routine yearly examination. Because only two women filled the questionnaire, we excluded them. The questionnaire contained a list of 49 symptoms and the aviators were asked to mark symptoms that were present in the last month before the examination as well as age, estimated weekly flying hours, military service status (reserve or career) and type of aircraft (jet-fighter, helicopter or transport)...

The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a heterogeneous group of heritable connective tissue disorders characterized by joint hypermobility, skin extensibility, and tissue fragility. This communication briefly reports upon the neurological manifestations that arise including the weakness of the ligaments of the craniocervical junction and spine, early disc degeneration, and the weakness of the epineurium and perineurium surrounding peripheral nerves. Entrapment, deformation, and biophysical deformative stresses exerted upon the nervous system may alter gene expression, neuronal function and phenotypic expression...

OBJECTIVE: Studies related to sleep disorders and polysomnography (PSG) among chronic daily headache patients are rare. We studied this and compared chronic migraine (CM) with chronic tension-type headache. METHODS: Eighty-three patients were recruited. They were evaluated by semi-structured interview, headache, and sleep diaries along with Epworth Sleepiness Scale score and insomnia symptom score. Overnight PSG was performed and data compared. RESULTS: Chronic tension-type headache was more common than CM, both having female preponderance...

BACKGROUND: New daily persistent headache (NDPH) is a type of chronic daily headache. NDPH can have migrainous (NDPH-CM) or tension-type character (NDPH-CTTH). Recently, NDPH patients have shown to have associated anxiety and depression. We compared anxiety, depressive symptoms, somatization and pain catastrophization among NDPH, healthy controls and patients with chronic low-back pain and between NDPH-CM and NDPH-CTTH. METHODS: We assessed the study population for depressive symptoms by Patient Health Questionnaire-9, anxiety by Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale - 7, somatoform disorder using DSM IV (TR) criteria and pain catastrophizing by using Pain Catastrophizing Scale...

BACKGROUND: Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the third leading cause of death and disability in developed countries. Anyone suspected of having a stroke should be taken immediately to a medical facility for diagnosis and treatment. The symptoms that follow a stroke aren't significant and depend on the area of the brain that has been affected and the amount of tissue damaged. Parameters for predicting long-term outcome in such patients have not been clearly delineated, therefore the aim of this study was to investigate this possibility and to test a system that might practicably be used routinely to aid management and predict outcomes of individual stroke patients...
