Abstract Background: Atopic dermatitis (AD) has been associated with impairment of sleep. The aim of this study was to evaluate sleep disorders in AD Latin-American children (410 years) from nine countries, and in normal controls (C). Methods: Parents from 454 C and 340 AD children from referral clinics answered the Children Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ), a one-week retrospective 33 questions survey under seven items (bedtime resistance, sleep duration, sleep anxiety, night awakening, parasomnias, sleep-disordered breathing and daytime sleepiness). Total CSHQ score and items were analysed in both C and AD groups. Spearman's correlation coefficient between SCORAD (Scoring atopic dermatitis), all subscales and total CSHQ were also obtained. Results: C and AD groups were similar regarding age, however, significantly higher values for total CSHQ (62.2 +/- 16.1 vs 53.3 +/- 12.7, respectively) and items were observed among AD children in comparison to C, and they were higher among those with moderate (54.8%) or severe (4.3%) AD. Except for sleep duration (r = -0.02, p = 0.698), there was a significant Spearman's correlation index for bedtime resistance (0.24, p < 0.0001), sleep anxiety (0.29, p < 0.0001), night awakening (0.36, p < 0.0001), parasomnias (0.54, p < 0.0001), sleep-disordered breathing (0.42, p < 0.0001), daytime sleepiness (0.26, p < 0.0001) and total CSHQ (0.46, p < 0.0001). AD patients had significantly higher elevated body mass index. Conclusion: Latin-American children with AD have sleep disorders despite treatment, and those with moderate to severe forms had marked changes in CSHQ. (C) 2016 SEICAP.
