Ages at Onset of Anxiety and Depressive Disorders in Parkinson's Disease. J Neuropsychiatry Clin Neurosci. 2019 May 23;:appineuropsych18090201 Authors: Seritan AL, Rienas C, Duong T, Delucchi K, Ostrem JL Abstract OBJECTIVE: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a quintessential neuropsychiatric condition in which anxiety and depressive symptoms are common and may precede motor manifestations. The authors explored the ages at onset of anxiety and depressive disorders among patients with PD evaluated by psychiatrists at a deep brain stimulation center. METHODS: Psychiatric diagnoses and ages at onset were collected via clinical interviews. The ages at PD diagnosis were ascertained by chart review. Onset ages for anxiety and depressive disorders (overall and for specific disorders) were compared with patients' ages at PD diagnosis by using t tests. Onset ages for major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and panic disorder were compared with typical onset ages in the general population by using the sign test. A total of 108 patients (66.7% men; age 63.7 years [SD=8.9]) were included in the analysis. RESULTS: Anxiety and depressive disorders occurred significantly earlier than PD diagnoses. Among patients whose anxiety and depression predated motor symptoms, the mean age at onset of anxiety disorders was 25.6 years earlier, and the mean age at onset of depressive disorders was 17.6 years earlier compared with the mean age at PD diagn...

Conclusion: Our results indicate similar prevalence rates of comorbid psychiatric symptoms to studies carried out in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and relatively high attendance and referral rates to psychiatric services.Implications: The results shed light on the clinical profile of patients in this region and support the need for integrated collaborative medical services. Moreover, findings have important implications for health care policies pertaining to resource distribution and funding.IntroductionMedical care has traditionally been dominated by a separation between disciplines catering to physiologi...

Conclusions:Prevalence of psychiatric comorbidities seems to be high in OT, especially anxiety-spectrum disorders. Further studies are needed to understand if psychiatric disorders appear as a secondary response to the patient’s symptoms, or are a primary non-motor manifestation of OT.Disclosure: Dr. Bhatti has nothing to disclose.
