Forty-eight asthmatic children (age 6-16 years), inpatients at the Hugh McMillan Medical Centre, were rated by their parents on their behavior using Achenbach's Child Behaviour Checklist. Completed checklists were used to determine normalized T scores for behavior syndromes, and these were compared against norms for clinically referred and nonreferred children. Behavior problems were elevated compared with nonreferred children for both boys and girls, with boys scoring at a clinical level. While many behavior problems were recognized, somatic complaints was a prominent syndrome, particularly for those in the 6-11-year age group.
