Background: Headache is the most common painful manifestation in the developmental age, often accompanied by severe disability such as scholastic absenteeism, low quality of academic performance and compromised emotional functioning. The aim of the study is to evaluate praxis abilities in a population of children without aural migraine.Materials and methods: The test population consists of 10 subjects without migraine without aura (MwA), (8 Males) (mean age 8.40, SD +/- 1.17) and 11 healthy children (7 Males) (mean age 8.27; SD +/- 1.10; p = 0.800).All subjects underwent evaluation of motor coordination skills through the Battery for Children Movement Assessment (MABC).Results: The two groups (10 MwA vs 11 Controls) were similar for age (8.40 +/- 1.17 vs 8.27 +/- 1.10; p = 0.800), sex (p = 0. 730), and BMI (p = 0.204). The migraine subjects show an average worse performance than the Movement ABC; specifically, migraineurs show significantly higher total score values (31.00 +/- 23.65 vs 4.72 +/- 2.61; p = 0.001), manual dexterity (12.10 +/- 11.20 vs 2.04 +/- 2.65; p = 0.009) and balance (14.85 +/- 10.08 vs. 1.04 +/- 1.05; p <0.001). The mean percentile of migraine performance is significantly reduced compared to controls (9.00 +/- 3.82 vs 51.00 +/- 24.34, p <0.001) (Table 1).Conclusion: Migraine can alter many cognitive and executive functions such as motor skills in developmental age.

Abstract

Background: Headache is the most common painful manifestation in the developmental age, often accompanied by severe disability such as scholastic absenteeism, low quality of academic performance and compromised emotional functioning. The aim of the study is to evaluate praxis abilities in a population of children without aural migraine.Materials and methods: The test population consists of 10 subjects without migraine without aura (MwA), (8 Males) (mean age 8.40, SD +/- 1.17) and 11 healthy children (7 Males) (mean age 8.27; SD +/- 1.10; p = 0.800).All subjects underwent evaluation of motor coordination skills through the Battery for Children Movement Assessment (MABC).Results: The two groups (10 MwA vs 11 Controls) were similar for age (8.40 +/- 1.17 vs 8.27 +/- 1.10; p = 0.800), sex (p = 0. 730), and BMI (p = 0.204). The migraine subjects show an average worse performance than the Movement ABC; specifically, migraineurs show significantly higher total score values (31.00 +/- 23.65 vs 4.72 +/- 2.61; p = 0.001), manual dexterity (12.10 +/- 11.20 vs 2.04 +/- 2.65; p = 0.009) and balance (14.85 +/- 10.08 vs. 1.04 +/- 1.05; p <0.001). The mean percentile of migraine performance is significantly reduced compared to controls (9.00 +/- 3.82 vs 51.00 +/- 24.34, p <0.001) (Table 1).Conclusion: Migraine can alter many cognitive and executive functions such as motor skills in developmental age.
