BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to analyze the quality of life and psychiatric symptomatology in patients suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases.
METHODS: In this study were enrolled 108 patients: 67 cases (ulcerative colitis in 39 patients, Crohn’s disease in 28 cases) and 41 controls (patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome). Patients were subjected to a self-reported symptoms inventory - revised (scl-90-r) to analyze general psychiatric symptomatology; Hamilton depression rating scale (ham-d) to analyze depressive symptomatology; short form-36 (sf-36) to evaluate the quality of life.
RESULTS: Patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease show major limitations in physical activities; they complain about daily activities; they consider their general health worsening along the time course. Patients suffering from ulcerative colitis have greater impairment if compared with Chron’s disease patients.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease have a significant impairment in several areas of life, in their quality of life and they have a psychiatric symptomatology showing emotional - psychological discomfort due to the underlying disease.
