英文摘要

Objectives - To explore the level of, and factors affecting the quality of life (QOL) in childhood epilepsy in China.

Subjects and methods - At the Peking University First Hospital, we consecutively identified 418 parents whose children were with known epilepsy to complete a questionnaire, which included children′s demographic characteristics, clinical message of epilepsy, QOL, familial message, parental symptoms of anxiety/depression.

Results - Significant (p < 0.05) affecting factors of children′s quality of life included current educational degree, mental development, age at diagnosis, age at onset, seizure frequency, duration, AED number; parental significant (p < 0.05) affecting factors included anxiety, depression and health. On regression analysis, parental anxiety was the most important factor in explaining lower QOL in childhood epilepsy. AEDs, familial economic state, paternal career, seizure frequency were also significant factors.

Conclusion - Parental anxiety outweighed the physical factors in determining QOL in childhood epilepsy. Recognition of this will be helpful for professionals to treat disease and improve the QOL of childhood epilepsy.
