Abstract

In adults, anxious depression has been identified as a more severe form of major depressive disorder (MDD), associated with higher depression severity, more suicidal ideation and worse treatment outcome. Research in pediatric depression, however, has been sparse. 126 children and adolescents aged 8–18 years with a primary diagnosis of MDD were categorized into a MDD-only group and an anxious depression group based on clinically elevated scores on the Beck Anxiety Inventory. One-third of the sample was classified as having anxious depression with females being overrepresented in the anxious depressed compared to the MDD-only group. 42.2% of the anxious depressed youth met diagnostic criteria for a comorbid anxiety disorder. Anxious depressed youth were more likely to suffer recurrent depressive episodes, showed higher depression severity and a unique pattern of depressive symptoms characterized by more severe sleep problems, more somatic complaints, more severely depressed mood and more frequent suicidal ideations. Scores on a suicidal ideation scale were increased even when controlling for overall depression severity. However, when comparing depressed patients with and without comorbid anxiety disorders, no differences in depression severity, symptom patterns or suicidal ideations were observed. The results indicate that high anxiety levels in depressed youth are clinically relevant, and given the increase in suicidal ideation, anxiety symptoms during depressive episodes should routinely be screened in clinical practice even in the absence of a fully formed comorbid anxiety disorder.
