Current Issue Highlights

Highlights from the February 2015 issue:

The prevalence, burden and treatment of severe, frequent and migraine headaches in US minority populations: statistics from national survey studies.
Loder, S; Sheikh, H; Loder, E
In the United States, migraine and other severe headaches are most common amongst Native Americans, followed by Whites, Hispanics, Blacks and then Asians. There may be racial and ethnic disparities regarding access and quality of care for minorities with headache and migraine.

Clinical and radiological findings suggesting disorders other than Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome among ophthalmoplegic patients: a retro spectiveanalysis.
Hung, C-H, Chang K-H, Chen Y-L, Wu, Y-M, Lai C-L, Chang, H-S, Lyu R-K, Wu, Y-R, Chen, C-M, Huang C-C, Chu, C-C, Chen, C-H, Ro, L-S.
In this study, typical symptoms or typical imaging findings predicted a diagnosis of Tolosa-Hunt syndrome with high sensitivity but low specificity. Since atypical imaging features were associated with high sensitivity and specificity for predicting an alternate cause of symptomatic painful ophthalmoplegia, atypical imaging features must be sought during the evaluation of the patient with suspected Tolosa-Hunt syndrome.
