Seventeen female subjects (ages 55–73) participating in a clinical trial for older panic disorder patients were administered the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire. Seven subjects reported histories of sexual abuse. Physical abuse was reported by 10 subjects, including six of the seven who also reported sexual abuse. The data raise questions regarding the possible contributory role of childhood trauma in some panic disorder patients.
