Abstract The strict and demanding dietary treatment and mild cognitive abnormalities seen in PKU treated from a young age can be expected to affect the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients and their families. Our aim was to describe the HRQoL of patients with PKU from a large international study, using generic HRQoL measures and an innovative PKU-specific HRQoL questionnaire (PKU-QOL). Analyses were exploratory, performed post-hoc on data collected primarily to validate the PKU-QOL.
