In this study, we enlisted 475 children (290 males and 185 females; ratio 1.6:1), aged 4 to 14 years, who were affected by primary headache. In direct interviews, children and parents gave information on the association of their headache with, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, tics, anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other 475 children with no history of headache or recognized neurological conditions were matched for age, sex, race, and socioeconomic status and were used as controls. RESULTS: A significant association of primary headache was found with anxiety and depression (p-value

Background: Knowledge is increasing about TSC-Associated Neuropsychiatric Disorders (TAND), but little is known about the potentially confounding effects of intellectual ability (IA) on the rates of TAND across age, sex, and genotype. We evaluated TAND in (a) children vs. adults, (b) males vs. females, and (c) TSC1 vs. TSC2 mutations, after stratification for levels of IA, in a large, international cohort.Methods: Individuals of any age with a documented visit for TSC in the 12 months prior to enrolment were included. Frequency and percentages of baseline TAND manifestations were presented by categories of IA (no intellect...

Abstract The current study examined the association between perceived neighborhood conditions and common childhood mental disorders in a nationally representative sample of children in the U.S. The data were derived from the 2017 National Survey of Children's Health, including American children aged 6-17 years (N = 15,438). Latent class analysis was used to identify subtypes of perceived neighborhood conditions regarding neighborhood physical environment, social capital, and violence. Three classes were identified: Ideal Neighborhood (55.99%); Insufficient Assets (27.38%), and Broken and Un...

Abstract The process of transition from pediatric to adult epilepsy care has received increased attention and emphasis in recent literature, particularly related to the assertion that effective transition is likely to lead to improved medical and psychosocial outcomes. However, the majority of current transition literature focuses on the structure of a transition program, with very little research providing relevant clinical data during the transition period and beyond. The current paper attempts to address this gap in the literature by providing pilot data on participants who engaged in the initial visit of a mul...

Watching TV throughout the week, you can be inundated by pharmacological commercials. One for a recently identified condition, Tardive Dyskinesia, may pique your attention. What is TD?  Shaking and tremors that are the result of decades long use of antipsychotic medications. Such medications prescribed since the 1960s can cause TD, a condition potentially treatable by taking a supplemental medication.  Few, if any, longitudinal studies of the adverse effects of these drugs exist. It is only recently that we have begun to record the unforeseen effects of continued use of many psychiatric medications — from t...
