Health-related quality of life and mental health in children and adolescents with strabismus - results of the representative population-based survey KiGGS



Health-related quality of life and mental health in children and adolescents with strabismus - results of the representative population-based survey KiGGS



Health and Quality of Life Outcomes 17(1): 81



To estimate the effect of strabismus (squinting) on mental health and health-related quality of life aspects in children and adolescents. Data from the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents KiGGS (2003-2006 baseline survey; N = 14,835, aged 3 to 17 years, 49% girls) were examined. The presence of strabismus was derived by parental questionnaire, and health-related quality of life and mental health were investigated with the KINDL-R and Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire. Associations between strabismus and outcomes were analyzed using multivariable linear and logistic regression models. Of 12,989 children without missing data, 579 children (4.5% of the sample) were reported to have strabismus. Children with strabismus had lower scores in the parent-reported KINDL-R total scale (adjusted beta = - 1.02; 95%CI: -1.86 to - 0.18; p = 0.018) and sub-scale 'friends' (adjusted beta = - 2.18; 95%CI: -3.56 to -0.80; p = 0.002) compared to children without strabismus. The presence of strabismus was also associated with more mental health problems like 'hyperactivity/inattention' (adjusted OR = 1.50; 95%CI: 1.14 to 1.98; p = 0.005), and 'peer problems' (adjusted OR = 1.35; 95%-CI: 1.05 to 1.74; p = 0.018) as reported by parents. Strabismus in children and adolescents is associated with lower health-related quality of life.
