A CLINICAL STUDY OF SUBSYNDROMAL ANXIETY SYMPTOMS IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS FROM

A NORTH INDIAN CHILD AND ADOLESCENT

CLINIC ABSTRACT Background & objectives: Though anxiety disorders are one of the most common group of psychiatric disorders among children and adolescents, the frequency of subsyndromal forms of anxiety in children and adolescents is unknown and under-diagnosed . No study is done in India on subsymdromal anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents. Therefore, this study was planned with the aim to identify subsymdromal anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents and elicit their phenomenology and impairment. Methods: Patients between age group 6 to 16 years attending child and adolescent psychiatry clinic were screened by Screen for child anxiety related emotional disorders (SCARED) scale. Those patients having anxiety symptoms, but not fulfilling criteria for any anxiety disorder their phenomenology was assessed by SCARED scale. Impairment due to anxiety symptoms was assessed by Children’s global assessment scale (CGAS). Results: Out of 1465 screened patients 21(1.43%) patients had anxiety symptoms. Mean age of patients with anxiety symptoms was 11.4±1.8years. Majority of patients were females patients 15(71%).

4(19.05%) patients had family history of psychiatric disorders. Mean score of anxiety

symptoms on SCARED scale was 18.24±2.51. Most of the subjects had some difficulty in functioning (Mean C-GAS score -65±3.78). Interpretation & conclusion: The significant prevalence of sub-syndromal anxiety symptoms, the significant psychosocial impairment associated with it and the possible chronicity of its

11

course should make the sub-syndromal anxiety symptoms a matter for serious consideration by both clinicians and researchers. Key words- anxiety, subsyndromal , children , adolescents.

1.Introduction The specification of diagnostic algorithms and cut off scores for different psychiatric disorders has led to the new controversy as to whether the sub-threshold/subsyndromal symptoms are a clinical problem at all, or separate phenomenon in their own right, or a minor form of major psychiatric disorder1. Though anxiety disorders are one of the most common group of psychiatric disorders among children and adolescents, the frequency of subsyndromal forms of anxiety

in children and adolescents is unknown. Unfortunately, these are often significantly

underreported and under-diagnosed and difficult to recognize. Great Smoky Mountains Study2 showed that subsyndromal anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents quadrupled the likelihood

of developing of anxiety disorders in the future. This study also revealed that

children and adolescents with subsyndromal forms of anxiety were twice as likely to have impaired functioning compared to those with no symptoms. Typically, the best predictor of later psychopathology2, including anxiety disorders , is earlier psychopathology. If symptoms of anxiety in children and adolescents are predictive of disorders and impairment, then treatment of

subsyndromal forms of anxiety in children and adolescents may be one of the few options

for reducing the chronicity of anxiety disorder.

No study is done in India on subsymdromal

anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents. Therefore this study was

planned

in a

psychiatry outpatient setting of a university department of psychiatry in northern India with the aim to identify subsymdromal anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents and elicit their phenomenology and impairment.
