M. Zhao, Liu, C. S., Xu, X. Y., Xiao, Y. P., and Fang, C., Unruptured saccular aneurysm presenting migraine, vol. 13. pp. 4046-4049, 2014.

Headache can be attributed to cranial or cervical vascular disorders including ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack, non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage, unruptured vascular malformation, arteritis, carotid-vertebral artery pain, and cerebral venous thrombosis. Here, we present a case report of unruptured saccular aneurysm with migraine. The patient was a previously healthy 32-year-old man with repeated episodes of headache for 6 years. Findings for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the head were normal.

Incidence of acute mountain sickness in young adults at 3200 meters: comparison of the Lake Louise Scoring and Chinese Scoring Systems

G. Z. Chen, Qin, J., Yu, J., Gao, X. B., Dong, J. Q., Lu, W., Bian, S. Z., Zeng, Y., and Huang, L., Incidence of acute mountain sickness in young adults at 3200 meters: comparison of the Lake Louise Scoring and Chinese Scoring Systems, vol. 12, pp. 6790-6801, 2013.

The purpose of this study was to compare two scoring systems used for the diagnosis of acute mountain sickness (AMS): the Lake Louise Scoring (AMS-LLS) and the Chinese Scoring Systems (AMS-CSS). In total, 339 healthy young adult volunteers residing at sea level ascended to 3200 m by train and bus over a total journey time of 48 h. All subjects ascended in the same manner and were divided into three groups that were assessed after one (N = 88), two (N = 91), and three (N = 160) nights, respectively, at altitude.
