A child with headache.

Abstract

A child with recurrent headaches may be a 'heart-sink' patient for some doctors. The mother may fear a brain tumour and the doctor may be reticent so as not to give inappropriate reassurance. Emotional factors may be important and the consultation needs careful handling if the situation is to be resolved.
