The study was aimed at investigating the possible presence of post-traumatic symptomatology in parents of children with leukaemia, during the period from the diagnosis to the stop therapy (two years later) with particular attention to this stage so far little explored. A longitudinal study with 4 time points, corresponding with important stages of the therapeutic protocol, was realized using a self-report questionnaire (PTSD Symptom Inventory) with 61 parents of leukemic children, contacted at the Department of Paediatrics, Oncology Hemathology Division, University Hospital of Padova. The findings show the presence in these parents of a moderate level of symptomatology at the diagnostic moment and a persistent level of symptomatology during all the time points considered.
