Answer

A study that evaluated the relationship between anxiety and health-related quality of life in children and adolescents with cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) reported that children and adolescents with CVS appear to be at increased risk for anxiety. Anxiety symptoms are a stronger predictor of health-related quality of life than disease characteristics in children and adolescents with CVS. Assessment and treatment of anxiety in children and adolescents with CVS may have a positive impact on health-related quality of life. [66]
