ABSTRACT. The aim of this study was to investigate social and behavioral problems related to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessions and compulsions, and tic severity in children with a tic disorder. Parents of 58 children with a tic disorder with and without different forms of ADHD completed the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) and the Children's Social Behavior Questionnaire. Patients with a tic disorder with primarily hyperactive-impulsive ADHD had the highest… 

Impact of obsessive-compulsive behavior on the psychopathological profile of children with chronic tic disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder

TLDR
The results indicate that OCS have a great impact on psychopathology associated with CTD and a slight impact on ADHD-related symptoms, and point out that optimal treatment planning should consider all symptoms and problems because children's main problems might not always be caused by the main diagnoses.

Anxiety in boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder with and without chronic multiple tic disorder.

TLDR
Boys with CMTD had a relatively more severe and complex pattern of anxiety that was associated with different clinical features, all of which suggests that ADHD plus C MTD might better be conceptualized as a distinct clinical entity from ADHD Only.

Tic disorders and ADHD: answers from a world-wide clinical dataset on Tourette syndrome

TLDR
Clinically the findings confirm other research indicating the importance of ADHD in understanding the behavioural problems often associated with the diagnosis of TS and additional ADHD comorbidity should be taken into account in diagnosis, management, and training.

Tic disorders and ADHD: answers from a world-wide clinical dataset on Tourette syndrome

TLDR
Clinically the findings confirm other research indicating the importance of ADHD in understanding the behavioural problems often associated with the diagnosis of TS, and additional ADHD comorbidity should be taken into account in diagnosis, management, and training.

Psychopathological Profile in Children with Chronic Tic Disorder and Co-existing ADHD: Additive Effects

TLDR
While CTD and ADHD were both related to internalizing psychopathology of children in the CTD+ADHD group, ADHD had the largest effect on externalizing psychopathological in the comorbid group.

Quality of Life Among Children and Adolescents With Tourette Disorder and Comorbid ADHD: A Clinical Controlled Study

TLDR
Children with TD + ADHD have lower QOL than their peers with ADHD alone and family functioning seems to affect QOL in both groups.

ELECTROPHYSIOLOGICAL CORRELATES OF LEARNING AND COGNITIVE CONTROL IN CHILDREN WITH TICS WITH AND WITHOUT ADHD SYMPTOMS

TLDR
The findings of this study indicate that comorbid ADHD symptoms introduce impairments in young people with TS that will negatively impact upon the ability to control tics.

Chronic tic disorders in children with ADHD

TLDR
CTD prevalence is higher in children with ADHD compared with controls, and confers substantial additional psychiatric and functional burden, and Clinicians need to consider CTD in both the initial assessment and ongoing management ofChildren with ADHD.

Developmental psychopathology of children and adolescents with Tourette syndrome – impact of ADHD

TLDR
Children with TS+ADHD have more comorbidities than the TS−ADHD group, whereas in both adolescent groups this did no longer hold for OCD and anxiety disorders, which indicates that in TS COMorbid ADHD is associated with high rates of externalizing and internalizing problems, whereas TS without ADHD isassociated only with internalize problems in adolescence.

Psychosocial outcome and psychiatric comorbidity in older adolescents with Tourette syndrome: controlled study

TLDR
Clinically ascertained children with Tourette syndrome typically have impaired psychosocial functioning and high comorbidity rates in late adolescence.

Comparative Study of the Behavioral and Neuropsychologic Characteristics of Tic Disorder With or Without Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

TLDR
The tic disorder with ADHD group might represent a true comorbidity of the two disorders, and has marked cognitive deficits and behavioral disturbance similar to the ADHD group, whereas the tic Disorder group is more similar toThe controls.

Impact of tic disorders on ADHD outcome across the life cycle: findings from a large group of adults with and without ADHD.

TLDR
Findings in adults with ADHD confirm and extend previous findings in young subjects with ADHD, documenting that although individuals with ADHD are at greater risk for tic disorders, the presence of tic Disorders has a limited impact on ADHD outcome.

Disruptive behavior in children with Tourette's syndrome: association with ADHD comorbidity, tic severity, and functional impairment.

TLDR
Comorbid ADHD is highly associated with disruptive behavior and functional impairment in children with TS and when disruptive behavior problems are present, there is an additional burden on children's social and family functioning.

Aggressive Behaviour in Children with Tourette Syndrome and Comorbid Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Obsessive—Compulsive Disorder

TLDR
Findings provide additional evidence that aggressive behaviour observed in children with TS may be associated with comorbid ADHD or OCD, independent of tic severity or age.

Executive function in children with Tourette Syndrome and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

TLDR
It is suggested that deficiencies in choice reaction time and consistency of timed responses are common to all three groups, but children with TS-only have relatively less EF impairment thanChildren with TS+ADHD or ADHD-only.

Brief report: cognitive functioning in children with Tourette's syndrome with and without comorbid ADHD.

TLDR
Results confirm prior findings that comorbid ADHD is associated with more TS symptoms and worse psychosocial and cognitive functioning, and motivate whether cognitive flexibility plays a role in moderating the deleterious psychossocial effects of Tourette's syndrome and ADHD.

Anxiety disorders and tic severity in juveniles with Tourette's disorder.

TLDR
It is suggested that non-OCD anxiety disorders in general and separation anxiety disorder in particular may be significantly associated with tic severity in referred TD patients.

Distinguishing illness severity from tic severity in children and adolescents with Tourette's disorder.

TLDR
The findings indicate that comorbid mood disorders are strongly associated with illness morbidity in youths with Tourette's disorder, highlighting the importance of attention toComorbidity in patients with TD.
