Differentiating the bipolar disorders (BDs) from borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be challenging diagnostically, because certain symptoms and traits, such as depression, aggression, and interpersonal relationships, are common to both conditions. The fact that all individuals diagnosed with BD do not meet BPD criteria suggests that both unique and related facets of the 2 conditions exist. Identifying related and unrelated items between BD and BPD should improve diagnostic accuracy. In addition, assessing for BPD features in youths at high risk for bipolar disorder can be clinically relevant.

The current study sought to identify features offering differentiation of borderline personality disorder (BPD) from bipolar disorder (BP). Participants were clinically assessed and assigned diagnoses based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders criteria. A 113-item self-report questionnaire was completed, comprising cognitive and behavioral constructs weighted to a borderline personality style. A total of n = 53 participants were assigned to BPD, n = 83 to BP, with comorbid participants excluded. Twenty items were highly endorsed (>95%) by the BPD group, with most of the features capturing emotion...

This study involved 714 adult patients with a primary diagnosis of BD per DSM-IV criteria who were admitted to the psychiatric unit at an academic hospital in Houston, TX between July 2013 and July 2018. All patients completed the BPQ within 72 hours of admission. Statistical analysis was used to detect correlations between severity of BD, length of stay (LOS), and scores on the BPQ. A machine learning model was constructed to predict the parameters affecting patients’ readmission rates within 30 days. Results: Analysis revealed that the severity of certain BPD traits at baseline was associated with mood state and...

Impulsivity is a psychiatric symptom that seems to be more prevalent in some mental disorders such as bipolar disorders (BDs). It is a trait that seems to be influenced by many clinical and sociodemographic variables across BD. To examine the relationship between impulsivity and these variables, we performed a cross-sectional study on 50 patients diagnosed with BD and 50 healthy subjects. Both groups were administered the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale; the Structural Clinical Interview for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition, for borderline personality disorder; the Beirut District Scale; and t...
