Emerg Infect Dis. 2005 Aug;11(8):1297-300. doi: 10.3201/eid1108.041083.

Abstract

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can arise in patients with medical illness. We used 2 Chinese self-report measures to examine features of PTSD, anxiety, and depression in 131 survivors of severe acute respiratory syndrome at 1 month and 3 months after discharge from the hospital. Risk factors associated with psychological distress were identified.
