Abstract
PURPOSE: To investigate the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as reported by parents in children with intermittent exotropia [X(T)] and to determine whether strabismus surgery for X(T) affects ADHD symptoms.



MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-one consecutive children undergoing muscle surgery for X(T) were prospectively recruited. One parent of each child completed the ADHD rating scale IV (ADHD RS-IV) assessment consecutively before and one year after surgery. Patients whose preoperative scores were above the cut-off point, the 90th percentile based on a Korean sample, were regarded as demonstrating the ADHD trait. The impact of muscle surgery on ADHD symptoms was assessed by comparing the preoperative scores with the post-operative scores.



RESULTS: Eight (15.7%) of the 51 patients demonstrated the ADHD trait. ADHD RS-IV scores following strabismus surgery significantly decreased in patients with the ADHD trait (p=0.014), while they did not differ in patients without the ADHD trait. Seven (87.5%) of the 8 patients with the ADHD trait showed improvement in their ADHD RS-IV scores after surgery. There was no difference in surgical success rates between X(T) patients with and without the ADHD trait.



CONCLUSION: The ADHD trait was relatively common in children with X(T), and the parent-reported symptoms of the children with the ADHD trait improved after strabismus surgery. These results suggest that childhood X(T) may be one contributing factor to ADHD- related symptoms
