Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Aim: The main objective of our study is to assess the socioeconomic, prenatal, neonatal and developmental properties of asthma cases who presented to child and adolescent psychiatry clinic and to compare psychiatric diagnosis frequency in terms of age and gender groups.
Material and Methods: Patient files of 194 children and adolescents with asthma who admitted to our hospital child and adolescent psychiatry outpatient clinic. were retrospectively reviewed. Patients' age, gender, parent education level and job status, mother's pregnancy history, delivery history, developmental stages and psychiatric diagnoses based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders- Fifth Edition (DSM-5) are noted.
Results: Majority of parents of asthma patients had a primary school education and 21% of mothers were working full time. About 14% of mothers reported smoking during pregnancy and 19% of children had delayed speech. In males and children with primary school age, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was frequent whereas female cases showed a higher rate of anxiety disorders.
Conclusion: The prevalence of psychiatric disorders, especially ADHD and anxiety disorders, is high in children and adolescents with asthma. The presence of difficulties in terms of sociocultural, prenatal, neonatal and developmental characteristics may increase the need to apply to the psychiatry outpatient clinics.
