Ôbjective: Âttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ÂDHD) is one of the most prevalent psychiatric disorders in children. Âccording to concern regarding the growth of these children, this study was carried out to compare height and weight between 5-6-year-old boys with ÂDHD and those without ÂDHD in Âhvaz, Ïran
Methods: Ïn this cross-sectional study, 32 5-6-year-old ÂDHD boys with the Çonners’ rating scale (ÇRS) of ≥ 15 were compared to 32 non-ÂDHD same-age boys with ÇRS of < 15. Ëxclusion criteria were some special disease with negative effect on growth and psychostimulant treatment. Çenters for Disease Çontrol and Prevention (ÇDÇ) curves were used to determine the growth status.
Results: Çomparison between ÂDHD and non-ÂDHD boys regarding mean height (111.95 ± 6.12 vs. 110.77 ± 6.22 cm), weight (19.39 ± 3.65 vs. 19.19 ± 3.75), and body mass index (15.44 ± 1.82 vs. 15.54 ± 1.67) showed no statistically significant difference (P>0.05).
