Concluding Comments

Children with CKD and their families face numerous physical and psychological challenges in coping with and adapting to their illness. Data suggest that youngsters at all stages of renal disease, including renal transplant recipients, have significant rates of psychological morbidity. Commonly reported findings include impairments in academic and cognitive functioning, along with disfiguring cosmetic changes related to surgeries and medication side effects. The burden of medical care, in particular that related to dialysis, frequently results in negative effects on academic performance, peer relations, and family functioning. These effects of CKD are generally chronic and persistent, with sequelae extending into adulthood. Data on psychological treatments are sparse, emphasizing the need for future treatment intervention studies specific to pediatric CKD.
