Abstract [en]

A total of 52 children, age 9 or over and at least 3 years (median=8) beyond SCT for leukaemia (n=32) or nonmalignant diseases, participated in a single-centre study of health and quality of life (QoL). QoL and self-esteem were assessed with SCHQ-CF87, a generic multidimensional self-report instrument, and with 'I think I am'. As a group, the children had good QoL, but were below norm in the bodily pain (P<0.05), general health and self-esteem dimensions (P<0.01). Lansky or Karnofsky function levels were at a median of 90. Sense of coherence (SOC-13) was normal and correlated with SCHQ-CF87. Most children were subjectively and objectively in good health according to a self-assessment symptom inventory or by a medical record-based scoring of late effects, although pain was commonly reported. A total of 25% of the patients were rated as having moderate to severe late effects, without considering cataracts or infertility. Neither age at SCT, gender, malignant vs nonmalignant disease, nor stature influenced QoL significantly. Children with moderate to severe chronic graft-versus-host disease or cognitive deficits had lower QoL in some dimensions. No correlation was, however, found between the physician-rated total late effects score and overall QoL. Contrarily, QoL was clearly related to the degree of self-rated symptoms.
