Summary, in English

Aim: The aim of the study was to translate and validate the PADQLQ (Pediatric allergic disease quality of life questionnaire), a disease specific quality of life questionnaire for the assessment of quality of life in children with pollen allergy. Methods: The PADQLQ was translated into Swedish according to guidelines. Children 7-18 years with grass pollen allergy were included. Quality of life was assessed in parallel with ordinary symptom scales (VAS) before, during and after the pollen season. Results: 98 children were included. 89 (91%) completed the study. The Results for PADQLQ showed good cross-sectional and longitudinal validity. The retrospective estimation after the season showed good consensus with the assessment during pollen season. Conclusion: Quality of life in children assessed with the PADQLQ (Pediatric allergic disease quality of life questionnaire), is a reliable strategy for evaluating the burden of disease in children with pollen allergy and for the evaluation of treatment.
