Objective To explore the changes of serum ferritin(SF),hemoglobin(Hb),blood lead in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD).Methods According to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders(DSM-Ⅳ),the Conner′s pa-rent ratting scale and integrated visual and audio continuous performance test method diagnosis,53 ADHD children were divided into 3 subgroups,identified as 20 cases of ADHD-predominantly inattention type(ADHD-I),18 cases of ADHD-combined type(ADHD-C),15 cases of ADHD-predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type(ADHD-HI),and 18 cases of healthy control group.Blood was taken to measure the levels of SF,blood lead and Hb.SPSS 11.0 software was used to analyze the data.Results 1.The levels of SF in ADHD subtype groups were lower than that in healthy control group(Pa0.05).And the level of SF in ADHD-I group was obviously lower than those in ADHD-C and ADHD-HI group.2.There were no significant difference in the levels of blood lead among the 3 subtypes of ADHD and healthy control group(Pa 0.05).3.There were no significant difference in the levels of Hb among the 3 subtypes of ADHD and healthy control group(Pa0.05).Conclusion Low iron stores contribute to ADHD.SF level must be evaluated and retrieved in subjects with ADHD,particularly in the subgroup of ADHD-I.
