Chronic illness can lead to anxiety and depression in both parents and their adolescents. The identification of predictor variables would greatly assist pediatricians and parents in identifying children at risk for prolonged depression. Findings indicate that age and gender of the adolescent and duration of illness did not affect the depression score, but type of illness affected the score significantly. This article illustrates the fact that pediatricians can use the Beck Depression Inventory to identify depression and guide parents and adolescents to adequate medical care.
