dc.description.abstractBackground: Fatigue is an important problem in patients with multiple sclerosis and stroke. This article aimed to 1) compare self-perceived level of fatigue 2) test and describe aspects of reliability and validity of the Persian fatigue severity scale in a large population of adult patients with neurological conditions. Method and Material: 113 patients [30 multiple sclerosis, 83 stroke] and 90 healthy subjects were enrolled. The fatigue severity scale questionnaire was translated and adapted; back-translated, pretested, and finally tested. A fatigue visual analog scale was also recorded. Test-retest was analyzed with one week interval. Results: The mean fatigue severity scale scores for patients with multiple sclerosis was significantly greater than stroke patients (p =0.001). The analysis of discriminative validity demonstrated that the Persian fatigue severity scale scores were statistically significant between healthy subjects and patients (p= 0.002 and p<0.001 for multiple sclerosis and stroke, respectively). The concurrent validity was confirmed by significant correlation between total Persian fatigue severity scale scores and fatigue visual analog scale (multiple sclerosis: 0.83; stroke: 0.72).The test-retest reliability was excellent (multiple sclerosis: 0.78; stroke: 0.95). The Cronbach's alpha was high (0.93) reflecting the internal consistency of Persian fatigue severity scale. Conclusions: Self-perceived fatigue level of patients with multiple sclerosis was higher than that for patients with stroke. The Persian fatigue severity scale was a valid and reliable instrument which could measure fatigue in Persian speaking patients with neurological conditions.eng
