OBJECTIVE: Knowledge about the stress response in children with cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) is sparse and the association between the stress response and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is unknown. Consequently, investigations on the influence of CL/P on the stress response alone and its association with HRQoL are of importance. The purpose was to determine whether salivary cortisol concentration in children with CL/P differs from that in children without clefts (controls) and whether there are any differences in salivary cortisol concentrations between ages, gender, and type of cleft...

The aim of this study is to compare child and parent perceptions of health-related quality of life in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. The scoliosis-specific SRS-22 and the generic KIDSCREEN-52 were administered to newly diagnosed patients and the latter also to a parent. Strong correlations (r > 0.5, p < 0.001) were revealed between conceptually similar dimensions of the instruments. Parents' assessments of their child's HRQoL were generally higher than the children/adolescents; however score differences were small and insignificant...

The inclusion of a dimensional trait model of personality pathology in DSM-5 creates new opportunities for research on developmental antecedents of personality pathology. The traits of this model can be measured with the Personality Inventory for DSM-5 (PID-5), initially developed for adults, but also demonstrating validity in adolescents. The present study adds to the growing body of literature on the psychometrics of the PID-5, by examining its structure, validity, and reliability in 187 psychiatric-referred late adolescents and emerging adults...
