Summary

Abstract
Background: Sexual functioning is a major component of the overall human wellbeing. However, data on the sexual disorders among the elderly remain few.
Aim: Determine the prevalence of sexual dysfunction among 100 elderly Tunisian subjects and evaluate the impact on quality of life and depression.
Results: The rate of sexual dysfunction was 88% without significant gender differences. Erectile dysfunction was the most common disorder in men (84.2%). Disorders of sexual arousal and pain were the most frequent disorders in women. The presence of sexual dysfunction was correlated with worse quality of life scores (p <0.001). A statistically significant correlation was not found with the depression score.
Conclusion: The improvement of the quality of life among the elderly should include systematic sexual dysfunction assessment and management. Sexual education programs should be carried out.
