dc.description.abstractIntroduction: In this study, we aimed to compare the levels of state and trait anxiety in pediatric patients with epilepsy and healthy controls during the COVID-19 outbreak in Turkey. Materials and Methods: In this study, the state (STAI-I) and trait (STAI-II) anxiety scales were applied to patients between the ages of 10-17 years that had been followed due to epilepsy and were in quarantine. Anxiety status and potential risk factors were compared with healthy age and gender-matched control group. Results: This study included 40 epilepsy patients and 40 controls. Among the patients in the epilepsy group 92.5% had moderate and 7.5% had severe anxiety (mean value of STAI-I and STAI-II were 40.3±4.8 and 40.9±10.5, respectively). There was no significant difference between epilepsy and controls groups in terms of mean STAI-I and STAI-II scale scores (p=0.756, 0.914). When the state anxiety scores were categorized as low, moderate, and high anxiety levels, moderate-to-high state anxiety was detected in the epilepsy group, and moderate-to-low state anxiety in the control group. The state anxiety level was found to be high in patients with high seizure frequency (p=0.045). No significant relationship was found between state and trait anxiety scale scores and factors such as epilepsy duration, quarantine duration, seizure type, drug resistance, and type of antiepileptics. Conclusion: In situations that commonly affect community health, clinicians should focus also on the mental health of epileptic patients. Therefore, we believe that mental health support should be provided to pediatric patients with epilepsy.en_US
