NS is common among Hong Kong Chinese children, as nearly one out of eight children (11.5%) were reported to have weekly NS. NS was significantly associated with symptoms suggestive of inflammatory diseases of the upper respiratory tract, anxiety, insomnia and other sleep-related symptoms. The findings provided important information on a common nocturnal symptom and could help paediatricians in their clinical assessment of children presenting with NS.
