Summary
Anecdotal reports and empirical research suggests that panic disorder exists in children and adolescents. Studies of adults who present to cardiologists with symptoms of chest pain indicate that a significant subgroup have panic disorder or NFPD (non-fear panic disorder). New patients who were referred to a pediatric cardiology clinic (n = 24), and age and gender matched controls from a primary care pediatric clinic were evaluated using a multi-modal assessment to test the hypothesis that children who present to the cardiologist with chest pain may have panic disorder or NFPD. Assessment materials included the K-SADS semi-stuctured interview, the STAI/C and RCMAS questionnaires for children, the CBCL for parents, and the CGAS, a clinician rated measure of global functioning. Affective symptoms were also assessed in an attempt to replicate findings from previous research that showed children with chest pain have depression. Significantly more children from the cardiology group, than from the primary care group, were diagnosed with panic disorder or NFPD. However, there were no significant group differences in the severity ratings of anxiety or affective symptoms, or on measures of global functioning. Post hoc exploratory analyses of the pediatric cardiology group indicated no significant differences in psychological symptoms when the children were divided into two subgroups based on the presence or absence of organic findings from the cardiology evaluation. This study's methodology improved on previous investigations by the use of standardized, multi-modal assessment; the use of a comprehensive interview that differentiated among different types of anxiety reactions and included both parent and child report; a specific measure of impairment of functioning, and the inclusions of a clinical comparison sample. The study was hampered by the small sample size which lessened the power to detect the small between group differences expected in the assessment of low base rate disorders. Future research should include larger sample size, longer term follow-up (e.g., at least 6 weeks), a more comprehensive measure of psychopathology, and a measure of the participants' interpretations of symptoms and their reactions to the diagnoses and explanations given by the cardiologist
