Childhood Comorbidity of Anxiety/Affective Disorders and Behavior Disorders

Childhood Comorbidity of Anxiety/Affective Disorders and Behavior Disorders

J L Woolston et al. J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry.

Abstract

Considerable data have been reported concerning comorbidity of various individual psychiatric disorders in children within the diagnostic supradomains of affect/anxiety disorders and behavior disorders as well as between these supradomains. To further examine such comorbidity, 35 psychiatrically hospitalized children were studied in terms of the prevalence of comorbidity, demographic and cognitive characteristics, adaptive functioning and maladaptive behaviors. The prevalence of comorbid behavior + affect/anxiety disorders exceeded 50% of the samples. Children with such comorbidity were similar to children with Behavior only diagnoses in terms of demographic and cognitive characteristics but differed in terms of adaptive functioning and maladaptive behaviors.
