Is there any difference in acromegaly and other chronic disease in quality of life and psychiatric morbidity?

CONCLUSIONS: The psychiatric morbidity, mainly anxiety and insomnia, occurs in 50% of patients with acromegaly. However, the psychological wellbeing and mood seem to be related to other factor such as the acceptance of the illness. Thus, concerning the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of acromegaly, an interdisciplinary approach, taking into account psychological and psychiatric consultation, is needed.

Grief is ubiquitous in the experience of children and adolescents with illness but not always recognized or named, and as a result grief is not always treated effectively by child/adolescent psychiatrists or pediatricians. Grief can be misinterpreted or treated as stress, anxiety, depression, adolescent moodiness, or behavioral concerns.

CONCLUSIONS: The marked reduction of C-Jun in SCC in comparison to normal skin and inflammatory skin dermatoses may refer to its tumor suppressor activity. C-Jun expression in SCC carries favorable prognosis. Absence of significant association between C-Jun and Ki-67 either in SCC or inflammatory skin diseases indicates that it does not affect proliferative capacity of cells.
