Abstract: Buruli Ulcer (BU) is a neglected tropical disease caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans. For mer BU patients may experience participation restrictions due to physical limitations, stig matization and other social factors. A scale that measures participation restrictions among children, who represent almost half of the affected population, has not been developed yet. Here, we present the development of a scale that measures participation restrictions in for mer BU paediatric patients, the psychometric properties of this scale and the scales’ results
