Children with diagnosed ADHD originated from the clinic-referred cohort. Road traffic noise (Lden) was estimated at t...

In conclusion, metabolic disorder in the pregnancy, dif ficulties in childbirth and specific family phenotype were related to ADHD, specifically with hyperactive–impulsive presentation, but not in subclinical ADHD.
