Abstract

The pediatric bipolar disorder profile of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL-PBD), a parent-completed measure that avoids clinician ideological bias, has proven useful in differentiating patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We used CBCL-PBD profiles to distinguish patterns of comorbidity and to search for quantitative trait loci in a genomewide scan in a sample of multiple affected ADHD sibling pairs.
