ABSTRACT
Objective To investigate the cognitive condition in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Methods Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children IV (WISC-IV) was administered for 127 DMD patients aged 6~14 years from April, 2013 to December, 2015. The verbal intelligence quotient (VIQ), performance intelligence quotient (PIQ) and full-scale intelligence quotient (FSIQ) scores were analyzed. Results The FSIQ, VIQ and PIQ were (93.2±18.6), (91.5±18.9), and (96.6±19.5), respectively, which were lower than 100 in normal population (P<0.001), and higher than that of patients abroad in the previous studies (P<0.001). There were 13 patients (10.24%) whose scores of FSIQ were less than 70. The VIQ-PIQ discrepancy score was (-5.0 ± 16.6). Conclusion About 1/10 of Chinese DMD pa-tients impaire in cognitive function, which is significantly lower than that abroad. VIQ is more affected than PIQ.
