This was a momentous week for me. After 14 years of carrying a hospital-grade old-school text pager to receive messages at work, I finally traded it in for a cell phone app. It should have been easy to get rid of my beeper. But instead, I felt waves of nostalgia when I turned it off for the last time. Those 240-character, pre-Twitter, low-resolution LCD messages follow the arc of my medical career and tell its story. It starts with a sound, and trust me when I say those innocent little boxes rival the volume of say, car horns or maybe ambulance sirens. As a resident, I never put my pager on silent mode for fear of missing ...

Open MRI of a 45-year-old man with panic disorder showed a sinus pericranii (SP). Examination of the scalp revealed a discolored scalp mass and MR venography displayed a hypoplastic straight sinus with persistent falcine sinus.SP is a venous anomaly consisting of a transosseous vascular channel connecting an intracranial sinus with subgaleal veins. High venous pressure in the late embryonic stage, as with a hypoplastic straight sinus, has been hypothesized to predispose affected individuals to develop other venous anomalies, i.e.

Conclusions: Our work clarified substantial unmet needs for services among active duty military personnel, the limitations of programs based in the military sector, and the potential value of civilian sector services that are not linked to military goals. We and our institutional review board opted against using a control group that would create ethical problems stemming from the denial of needed services. For future research, an evaluative strategy that can assess the impact of civilian services and that reconciles ethical concerns with study design remains a challenge. Due to inherent contradictions in the roles of milit...

We investigated the rates of current and past benzodiazepine (BZD) use in a sample of 102 subjects attending specialized anxiety disorder clinics, including panic disorder (PD; N= 36), social anxiety disorder (SAD; N=28) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD; N=38) patients. Almost 56% of the entire sample was using BZDs at the moment of the assessment, and 74.5% described having used them at some point during their lifetimes. The duration of psychiatric treatment and a lifetime history of PD, but not any other “transdiagnostic” measure of severity (such as the Panic and Agoraphobia Scale, the Social Phobia In...
