Aim and Background: Improving the quality of life is the main goal of managements for all diseases. The present study aimed to determine the relationship between quality of life and symptom severity in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Methods and Materials: Based on physician diagnosis using Rome III criteria, 225 patients with irritable bowel syndrome who were visited in a psychosomatic clinic in Isfahan, Iran were recruited. All the selected cases completed the irritable bowel syndrome-quality of life (IBS-QOL) and irritable bowel syndrome severity index (IBS-SI) questionnaires. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Pearson’s correlation coefficient. Findings: 65 (28.9%) patients were males and 160 (71.1%) were females with mean age of 38.6 ± 12.3 years and mean disease duration of 5.1 ± 4.3 years. Mean score of IBS-QOL and IBS-SI was 43.4 ± 20.7 and 238.9 ± 95.4, respectively. IBS-QOL score and IBS-SI score had a statistically significant positive correlation. Conclusions: The quality of life was inversely related to severity of symptoms in patients with IBS.
