Abstracts
The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of depression among low back pain (LB P) patients and to investigate the sociodemographic characteristics of patients with LB P and relationship between depression and pain intensity in LB P patients. The study was conducted on 99 patients treated at Clinical Department of Neurology, Split University Hospital Center. There were 36 (36%) men and 63 (64%) women. Some degree of depression was present in 73 (74%) study patients, including all patients with severe LB P. In the group of patients with severe LB P, the rate of moderate, severe and very severe depression was 1.36-fold that recorded in the group of patients with moderate LB P and 2.58-fold that found in the group of patients with mild LB P (χ2=16.2; p=0.003). The most common symptoms were general physical symptoms 70 (71%), psychic anxiety 69 (70%) and depressed mood 66 (67%). It is concluded that depression was more severe in LB P patients with severe disease compared to patients with mild or moderate LB P.
