Psychological Functioning of Children and Adolescents With Eosinophil-Associated Gastrointestinal Disorders

This study examined health-related quality of life and adjustment among children with eosinophil- associated gastrointestinal disorders (EGID) compared with an age-matched sample without acute or chronic illness. Participants were youth ages 2 to 18 years. Children and caregivers completed measures of psychological symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Significant group differences were found for child report of depressive, as well as anxiety symptoms. Significant group differences were also found for caregiver report of psychological symptoms and social skills. Finally, based on parent and youth report, HRQOL and greater school absenteeism were associated with EGID diagnosis.
