Abstract

中、高等学校の普通学級に通うてんかん患者69名 (男33、女36) を対象とし、病名の認識を中心とした意識調査をした。病名を知っていると答えた患者は37名、53.6%のみであった。しかも、「てんかん」と認識している患者はこの内9名のみであった。37名中67.6%は病名を教えてもらってよかったと考えていた。病名を知らないと答えた32名の内、自分の病名を知りたいと考える患者は34.4%にしかすぎなかった。病名を知っている37名に病名を教えた人を問うと母親と医師がそれぞれ約半数を占めた。父親と答えた患者は1名だけであった。病名を知っている37名と知らない32名を比較すると、前者では服薬は必要と考える患者が有意に多く治療に対して意欲的であった。しかし、その他には差は認められなかった。病名を認識することの弊害は認められず、思春期のてんかん患者に対しても積極的な病名告知を進めるべきと考えられた。

We carried out the questionnaire study about the recognition of the name of illness among adolescent patients with epilepsy.<BR>Subjects were 69 adolescent patients (33 boys, 36 girls) who were students of regular classes of junior high schools and high schools.Only 37 patients (53.6%) stated that they know the name of their illness, and only 9 of those 37 recognized their illness as“ Epilepsy”. Twenty five (67.6%) of those 37 felt happy to know the name of their illness, although only 11 (34.4%) of 32 patients who have not been told about the name of their illness wanted to know it. Among 39 patients who knew the name of illness, those who were taught it by mother or physician came up to about a half respectively. Only one patient was taught the name of illness by his father. Comparing 37 patients who knew the name of illness and 32 who did not know it, more patients thought necessary to take medicine in former group than later, but no other difference was noted.<BR>Since no evil effect of recognizing the name of illness was noted, it seems desirable to make adolescent patients with epilepsy notice the name of their own illness.
