Sommario

La cefalea rappresenta uno dei sintomi più frequentemente riscontrabili: di cefalea soffre almeno una volta all'anno l'80% della popolazione.

Nel presente lavoro gli autori forniscono una rassegna delle più recenti teorie sulla fisiopatologia neurovascolare delle cefalee primarie con particolare riguardo alla cefalea rinogena. Sono riportati, inoltre, i risultati di uno studio condotto su 2262 bambini delle prime classi volto ad indagare i rapporti esistenti tra rinite allergica e cefalea nell'età evolutiva, da cui è emerso che la cefalea dei soggetti affetti da rinite allergica è riferibile alla disfunzione nasale sempre presente in questi casi.

Abstract

The Headache is a common symptom: 80% of the population suffers from headache at least one time per year.

This work is a review of new theories on neurovascular pathophysiology of primary headaches in a particular manner on rhinogenic headache.

Besides, the authors report the results of a study carried out in 2262 children, who where attending the primary school, in order to investigate the relation between allergic rhinitis and headache in children. The present study suggests that the headache in allergic patients is related to nasal dysfunction always present in these cases.
