Introduction: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformation of the spine and body, affecting 2-3% of healthy adolescents. We talk about idiopathic scoliosis, when it comes to the rotation and movement in the spine, and the cause for this is unknown. The diagnosis is set when the Cobb’s angle is measured to be equal to or greater than 10 ° and at the same time the axial rotation on the apical vertebra is noticeable. Over time, new ways of assessing deformation have emerged. The most useful questionnaire SRS-22 is the assessment of the quality of life. It is a simple, practical and specifically focused questionnaire covering 5 key areas. Purpose: The purpose of the diploma thesis is to research the impact on idiopathic scoliosis on the quality of life, base on reviewing of the literature. Methods: In the diploma thesis I used the method of systematic review of literature. In the analysis, I included 6 articles published in 2013 in 2017. The literature was searched in English and Slovenian language, in the PubMed database, Journal of Spine, ScilenceDirect and Chinahl. Results: Based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 6 researches was included in the diploma. Discussion and conclusion: The results showed that the self-image part of the questionnaire is always rated with the lowest score, followed by the mental health field. Deformation affects each individual differently. It is essential for health professionals that patient doesn’t feel the pain and that body functions are not limited, while patient worries much more about appearance, which is reflected in the problem of self-image in mental health. In assessing mental health, a number of other factors that affect the psychology of a person have to be considered, that may not be completely linked to deformation. The SRS-22 questionnaire, for the sake of the assumption that could predict the severity of the curve and could have impact on the quality of life of people with idiopathic scoliosis, presupposes self-image.
