Abstract

Introduction: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be considered as one of the widespread childhood neurological disorder, which is a well-known disorder among some chronic diseases.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate ADHD in girls with infrequent voiding and compare it with healthy children.

Patients and Methods: One-hundred children aged between 5 and 12 years old with infrequent voiding and 100 healthy children without infrequent voiding, who were referred to the pediatric clinic were included in this case–control study as case and control groups, respectively, based on inclusion and exclusion criteria (Amirkabir hospital of Arak, Iran). Subjects were selected through simple random sample selection and ADHD was diagnosed by Conners’ Parent Rating Scale– 48 (CPRS-48) and DSM-IV criteria and was confirmed by psychologist consult.

Results: ADHD inattentive type was observed in 6 patients in the case group and 2 patients in the control group. Moreover, 16 and 4 children, from the case group, were affected by ADHD hyperactive-impulsive type. Additionally, 7 and 4 children, from the control group, were affected by ADHD mixed type (P=0.005). There were differences between the prevalence of ADHD in the case group and the control group. Data were analyzed using Binomial test in SPSS 18.

Conclusion: The result of this study showed that ADHD is more common in children with infrequent voiding

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

In a study on 100 children with infrequent voiding as the case group and 100 healthy children, ADHD is more common in children with infrequent voiding.
