Conclusions: Bipolar disorder is common among primary care patients presenting with depression; it is often treated exclusively in primary care. Clinicians should be alert for symptoms of bipolar disorder in undiagnosed patients, know what symptoms probabilistically suggest bipolar versus unipolar depression, have expertise in providing ongoing treatment to diagnosed patients, and be knowledgeable about managing common medication-related side effects and comorbidities. Prompt and accurate diagnosis is critical. PMID: 31311335 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

As awful for health as they are, having played such a huge role in childhood breakfasts, thoughts of breakfast cereals still conjure up a host of memories. Deep within the haze of my childhood memories, buried beneath recollections of nerdy high school days, a marriage gone sour, and a brother-in-law midlife crisis involving duct tape, three members of the local PTA, and a VW bus, are images of the mornings I sat with my two sisters at our kitchen table in suburban New Jersey, each of us slurping a bowl of Trix, Lucky Charms, or Fruit Loops cereal, still recovering from a late night of Bewitched and Mission Impossible.

Authors: Tran K, Wu J Abstract A 2-year-old male pediatric patient experienced a partial occlusion of the internal carotid and subsequent asphyxiation resulting in hypoxic brain injury that was later misdiagnosed as primary attention deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Imaging analyses using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quantitative volumetrics (QV) were used nine years following the incident to identify whether his development of ADHD is of a primary heritability or secondary hypoxic brain injury sequelae. The patient's DTI analysis g...
