Migraine and headache in the WHO GBD study

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study takes a standardised approach to estimating incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability (YLD) of various diseases and health states, often segmenting the data by age, sex, year, and geography.[GBD, 2017] An analysis of t…

Prevalence of migraine with and without aura

Although estimates vary, approximately 20% of patients with migraine experience aura, albeit not during every attack.[Queiroz et al., 2011; Weatherall, 2015] The aura of migraine is usually visual, and can include flashes of light, moving patterns, or partial loss of visi…

Genetics
Genetics

Various approaches have been taken to unravel the complex genetics of headache and migraine disorders.[Sutherland et al., 2019] Linkage mapping analysis can trace genetic markers and candidate genes in family pedigrees of monogenic headache disorders.[Sutherland et al., 2…
