Search Camp 6/13/07: Clinical Question

A 14 year old boy presents in clinic with five days of persistent headache. Find clinical tools to help support the physician.

Some hints - useful things include a differential diagnosis (ddx) list, which is a list of possible conditions that could cause persistent headache; guidelines on evaluating and treating headache in adolescents, etc. Try to anticipate the types of questions a clinician might have in this situation. Check out the "Resources for Clinicians" page, and the matrix I put together about our clinical resources (http://www.biomed.lib.umn.edu/help/guides/resourcesforclinicians).
