Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate some antropometric and clinical parameters in children with cystic fibrosis.Studies involved 34 patients with cystic fibrosis:13 girls(38.24%)and 21 boys (61.76%)intheageof 6 to 18 (x ± SD = 12 ± 3,12 lat). Variables: antropometric measurements (height, body weight, circumference of the chest), spirometry, 6 minute walkin test (6MWT), pulse oximetry had been measured for 4 consecutive years. Significant difference was found in dynamics of change of body weight in boys with cystic fibrosis in comparison with healthy boys in the age: 9-11 and 12-14 ( p< 0,001 and p< 0,03 respectively). Analogous differences were found in: dynamics of change of height in girls with cystic fibrosis in comparison to healthy girls in the age 12-14 (p
