, : A study based on one hundred cases. Endocrinology 15(1): 11-16

In 100 cases of migraine, a family history of migraine was obtained in 39. Sixty-nine were females, 31 males. The average age of the females was 36.8 years; of the males, 37.9 years. The duration of the disease averaged 8.35 years. The average weight of the females was 140; of the males, 160 pounds. The average height of the females was 64.6, while that of the males was 70.4 in. The immediate families of 51 females whose histories were obtained (70%) approached an average of 72 in. in height. The average height of the immediate families of 21 males whose histories were obtained (80%) also approached 72 in. The blood pressure averaged 129/80 in the females and 128/80 in the males. In 51 basal metabolic rate determinations in females 40% gave plus readings[long dash]an average of +9%. Sixty per cent of the females gave minus readings with an average of[long dash]10.8%. In 23 basal metabolic rate determinations in males 26% gave plus readings (average of +17.5%), while 73% gave minus readings (an average of [long dash]11%). Twenty-seven blood cholesterol estimations gave an average of 225 mgm. %. Sixty-five per cent of the females had had one or more major operations. Seventy-one per cent of those operated upon had had laparotomies. Five, or 11%, had had hysterectomy for fibroid. Eight, or 17.7%, had had cholecystectomy. Five of this number had had cholelithiasis. Fourteen, or 31%, had had laparotomy for chronic appendicitis. Thirteen, or 29%, had had thyroidectomies. Nine, or 29%, of the males had had major operations. Six, or 66%, had had appendectomies for chronic appendicitis. Two, or 22%, had had thyroidectomies.[long dash]Author's summary.
