    Article - En anglais

    A total of 546 children and adolescents, aged 5 to 15 years, who were admitted as in-patients to psychiatric hospitals throughout Denmark betweeen 1970 and 1973, were followed up with regard to later readmissions and mortality.

    Approximately one-third of the sample had at least one readmission after the age of 18 years ; there was no significant difference between male and female subjects.

    Probands with three selected diagnoses, namely childhood neurosis, conduct disorder and maladjustment reactions, did have a significantly greater general risk of readmission to psychiatric hospital in adulthood than the background population.

    In total, 24 probands (22 male, and 2 female subjects) died during the study period.

    Eight subjects had committed suicide.

    The standard mortality rate was significantly increased.
