Psychopathological Differentiation of Psychotic Symptoms.

Assessing Motor-Cognition Interaction of Patients with Cognitive Disorders: Clinical Aspects.

Background: Difficulties of walking and deficits of cognitive functions appear to be associated in the elderly. Thus, clinical assessment in geriatry and neurology should focus on: (1) diagnostic approaches covering both domains of everyday functioning; (2) therapeutic interventions that take into account possible interactions and synergies of both domains. Discussion: In order to assess the capability for motor-cognitive interactions in the elderly it is recommended to investigate walking patterns during d...

The Concept of Typology in Psychiatry in the Context of Historical Contributions of Max Weber and Karl Jaspers.

Against the background of Max Weber's and Karl Jaspers' outstanding historical contributions to the conceptual development of different typologies, the importance of a psychiatric typology is examined. The term "ideal type" was introduced into social science by Weber as an analytical construct to describe and classify cultural phenomena. This concept was adopted for the psychiatric context by Jaspers who proposed to establish a typological system in the field of psychotic disturbances without an organic cor...

Factors Influencing Lead Time in Multiple Sclerosis: Survey of Members of the German Multiple Sclerosis Society in Saxony-Anhalt.

Background: Multiple sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system in which the myelin layer is disrupted. Early diagnosis and early therapy are decisive for the course of the disease. Methods: To analyze the time to diagnosis and the factors having an influence on this process, members of the German Multiple Sclerosis Society in Saxony-Anhalt (n = 941) were surveyed. Thanks to a return rate of 424 questionnaires (response rate ≈45 %), the results provide a good overview of ...

A Pair of Siblings with Frontotemporal Dementia and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and a Novel Thr462Lysfs Mutation in the TBK1 Gene.

We report on a pair of siblings with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and a novel Thr462Lysfs mutation in the TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) gene identified through the European Early-Onset Dementia Consortium. The patients presented at the age of 77 and 75 years and displayed dementia and bulbar symptoms as well as progressive paresis. After a progressive course, both of them died only a few months after diagnosis. Most recently, TBK1 mutations were identified in patients...

Psychosis - clinical differential diagnosis.

Background: Many patients with psychiatric and organic disorders may present primary or secondary psychotic symptoms. Based on the ICD 10 classification, this article describes the possible underlying diseases and their subdivision. The main focus will be differential-diagnostic evaluations of psychotic syndromes. Results: In the clinical setting, the differential diagnosis of the paranoid schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders into three main disease groups is important: 1. other psychiatric diseases,...

Practical Use of the Levodopa Pump.

Patients with advanced Parkinson's disease and motor complications undergoing optimized oral therapy can significantly benefit from continuous intrajejunal levodopa/carbidopa infusion applied by means of a medication pump. However, this requires a correctly positioned PEG-J tube and finely adjusted pump settings. Although this method is a routine procedure in specialist centers, no standard procedure has been defined up to now. For this reason, an expert recommendation regarding the practical application ...

The Therapeutic Dilemma in Treatment of Intracranial Infectious Aneurysm in Patients with Infective Endocarditis: Proposal for a Patient-Centered, Interdisciplinary Treatment Concept.

Intracranial infectious aneurysms are rare but hazardous complications of an infective endocarditis. To date, there are no evidence-based recommendations for the treatment of patients with this condition. Therefore, it remains an interdisciplinary challenge to decide which treatment steps are required and in which order they should be carried out. To illustrate the interdisciplinary dilemma in the treatment of these patients, we here present a case of a 23-year-old, drug-addicted woman with infectious endoc...

German Translation and Validation of the Scale for Evaluation of Neuropsychiatric Disorders in Parkinson's disease (SEND-PD).

The aim of the present study was to validate and provide a German version of the Scale for Evaluation of Neuropsychiatric Disorders in Parkinson's disease (SEND-PD) of Martínez-Martín et al. (2012).

The Value of Neuropsychological Legal Evaluations.

In the context of neurological assessment, neuropsychological deficits, in particular of attention and memory functions, usually require additional neuropsychological evaluation. Clinical neuropsychology also has at its disposal an inventory of validated and standardized tests for assessing symptom validity. Procedure, test selection, quality criteria and limitations of neuropsychological expert medical evaluations are presented. Independent expert evaluations should be conducted by a qualified clinical neu...

Mental disorders in women: Natural course during premenstrual phases, peripartum period and perimenopause.

Epidemiological studies indicate sex-specific differences in prevalence rates and the natural course of mental disorders. Affective, anxiety, somatoform and eating disorders are more prevalent in women than men, whereas substance use disorders occur more commonly in men, and some disorders are equally distributed in both sexes (e. g. psychotic disorders). The aim of this review is to depict the natural course of mental disorders during the reproductive stages (premenstrual phases, peripartum period, perim...

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Depression in Patients with Parkinson's Disease.

Non-motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are gaining more and more interest. Diagnosis of mental disorders in particular, such as anxiety and depression, are often not a part of the professional's diagnostic procedure in spite of the high prevalence rate. To provide these patients with comprehensive treatment, proper diagnosis and appropriate therapy are required. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been one of the most efficient therapies for anxiety and depression, also in a group s...

Müller-Hegemann's classification of depressions of 1964 as a proposal for a conceptualization of affective disorders: A critical review.

Against the background of current discussions on the classification of psychiatric disorders, this study analyses and discusses the East-German psychiatrist Dietfried Müller-Hegemann's concept of a clinical classification of depressions of 1964.In his paper, Müller-Hegemann differentiated between two main forms of depression, namely the "vitally tinged depression" (= melancholy), found mainly in the depressive phases of the manic-depressive disorder, and the "depressive disgruntlement" (= dysthymia) s...

Outcome Quality of Open General Psychiatric Inpatient Treatment at the Meso Level - an Observational Study in an Urban German General Hospital.

Inpatient treatment (meso level) in psychiatric hospitals is commonly assumed to be effective. However, there is very little evidence-based data on this issue.

Radiation-Induced Radiculopathy with Paresis of the Neck and Autochthonous Back Muscles with Additional Myopathy.

Radiation-induced tissue damage is caused by ionizing radiation mainly affecting the skin, vascular, neuronal or muscle tissue. Early damages occur within weeks and months while late damages may occur months or even decades after radiation.Radiation-induced paresis of the spine or the trunk muscles with camptocormia or dropped-head syndrome are rare but have already been described as long-term sequelae after treatment of Hodgkin's lymphoma. The differential diagnosis includes limb-girdle muscular dystrophy...

Pathophysiology and Prognostic Factors of Autoimmune Encephalitis.

More and more forms of autoimmune encephalitis are being identified with the clinical spectrum ranging from epilepsy over movement disorders to psychosis. The increasing appreciation of clinical symptoms raises questions about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and prognostic factors. Numerous novel findings on the aetiology demonstrate that diverse tumours, but also infections of the central nervous system such as Herpes encephalitis can trigger autoimmune encephalitis. Antibodies against neurona...

Clinical Phenomenology of Autoimmune Encephalitis.

Antibody-associated disorders of the central nervous system constitute a heterogeneous group of disorders that can be roughly divided into two categories: Classic paraneoplastic syndromes associated with so-called well-characterized antibodies (paraneoplastic neurological disorders, PND) and autoimmune disorders with antibodies to membrane-bound or synaptic antigens (autoimmune encephalitis, AE). The discovery of autoimmune encephalitis has led to a paradigm shift in diagnosis and therapy as well as a recla...
