ABSTRACT

The effect of the nephrotic syndrome on various aspects of behavior and development was examined in a group of 44 patients. The results of parent interviews, teacher ratings, and psychological tests (using the Self Observation Scales and the Children's Service Questionnaire) were compared with a closely matched group of healthy children. Very few statistically significant differences were noted. Comparisons were made with results of other studies of chronic disorders and their effect on the child's behavior and development.
