Long-term effects of mental disorders on marital outcomes in the National Comorbidity Survey ten-year follow-up

ConclusionsIndividuals with common mental disorders are at greater risk of marital dissolution and are less likely to enter new marriages. These factors contribute to the diminished social engagement and social support for individuals with these disorders. Interventions aimed at improving marital and family relationships could potentially ameliorate the effect of mental disorders on these vital social ties.

The increased awareness of LAMN and its histologic features has caused some benign entities to be misinterpreted as LAMN based largely on the presence of mucin extrusion and hyperplastic and reactive appendiceal mucosa. The misinterpretation o...
