Les céphalées symptomatiques (tumeur, sinusite, troubles visuels…)

  • D. AnnequinEmail author

Résumé

La céphalée constitue un symptôme très banal chez l’enfant. De très nombreuses causes de céphalées secondaires [1] sont décrites dans la classification internationale. En dehors des céphalées primaires qui constituent plus de 95 % des causes des céphalées récurrentes de l’enfant, un très petit nombre est dû à un trouble métabolique, à une lésion, à un trouble neurologique [2]. Pourtant, devant une céphalée de l’enfant, la démarche médicale se limite trop souvent à la recherche de ce type de cause, la migraine demeurant un diagnostic d’exclusion. Dans cette liste, figurent en tête les tumeurs cérébrales, mais aussi les pathologies des sinus et des yeux. Les principales causes de céphalées secondaires de l’enfant sont décrites ici.
