Fig. 3. Forest plot shows the association between childhood sexual abuse and development of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Talley et al29 (1998) did not find childhood sexual abuse below 14 years to be associated with IBS after controlling for gender, age, psychological morbidity, and neuroticism. Salmon et al22 (2003) found childhood sexual abuse below 14 years to be a significant predictor of IBS as compared to physical disease. Beesley et al23 (2010) showed that IBS patients had a higher likelihood of remembering childhood sexual abuse occurring below 14 years as compared to Crohn’s disease patients after controlling for gender.
