Abstract

The frequent misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder (BD) is associated with detrimental consequences and inappropriate treatments. The 32-item Hypomania Checklist (HCL-32) and the Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) are widely used self-report screening instruments for BD. This is a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the psychometric properties of the HCL-32 and the MDQ based on the same patient samples. Two reviewers systematically and independently searched PubMed, PsycINFO, EMBASE, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases. Studies using the HCL-32 and MDQ concurrently and reporting their psychometric properties were included. Eleven studies that met the entry criteria were included in the systematic review, and 9 studies with relevant data were included in the meta-analysis. Using study-defined cutoffs, summary sensitivities were 82% (95% CI: 72%-89%) and 80% (95% CI: 71%-86%), while specificities were 57% (95% CI: 48%-66%) and 70% (95% CI: 59%-71%) for the HCL-32 and the MDQ respectively. Both the HCL-32 and the MDQ have acceptable psychometric properties to identify BD and appear to be useful screening tools for BD.
