The sum of the individual scores creates a total score between zero and 70, with higher scores representing a more severe impact of disease.

Abstract

INTRODUCTIONThe Paediatric Throat Disorders Outcome Test (T‐14) is a validated, disease‐specific, health‐related quality of life research tool intended for completion by parents of children under 16 years of age with tonsil and adenoid disease. It is composed of 14 questions relating to the spectrum of tonsillitis symptoms and sequelae, ranging from sore throat to time off school, and symptoms relating to tonsillar hypertrophy and resulting obstructive problems. Each question is scored from zero to five using a six‐point Likert scale. The sum of the individual scores creates a total score between zero and 70, with higher scores representing a more severe impact of disease. The tool may also be divided into two subscales, with the first six items loading onto an “obstructive” domain, and the remaining eight items loading onto an “infective” domain. Developed and validated in 2010 in the United Kingdom by Hopkins et al, the T‐14 is a modification of a pre‐existing instrument, the Tonsil and Adenoid Health Status Instrument. The T‐14 is an easy to complete, reliable and responsive survey that has become a valuable tool for outcome research in paediatric otorhinolaryngology; it is used to both measure the impact of throat disorders on health‐related quality
