|Abstract||In many epidemiological pain studies, women more frequently report more intense, frequent and long-lasting or chronic transient pain than men. In our retrospective study including hospitalised patients referred to a pain centre, prevalence of headaches, musculoskeletal pain and somatoform pain was observed in women, as described in the literature. Generally pain intensity was higher in women and pain was more frequently controlled in men, but when intensity and pain control were compared according to the pain aetiologies, no gender difference was found. Drug treatments were adapted to pain aetiologies, which accounted for the observed differences. In hospitalised patients the significant differences observed in intensity, pain control and treatment reflect the heterogeneity of pain aetiologies rather than gender differences.|
