Clinical features of bipolar disorder with idiopathic basal ganglia calcification: a review of case reports in the literature.

Clinical features of bipolar disorder with idiopathic basal ganglia calcification: a review of case reports in the literature. Neurocase. 2019 Jul 02;:1-6 Authors: Ishitobi M, Kumashiro N, Nakao K Abstract Although idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) is associated with various neuropsychiatric disturbances including several cases of bipolar disorder (BD), there has been no systematic review of clinical features of patients with BD and comorbid IBGC. We undertook a literature search to identify case reports of these patients. Most cases showed complex syndromes comprising not only mood disturbance but also cognitive disability and motor symptoms limited to depressive state and had favorable treatment response. These patients should have a careful and repeated psychiatric, neurological, and cognitive assessment to determine an optimal diagnostic and treatment approaches at each clinical stage.

AbstractCognitive deficits are a core feature of serious mental illnesses such as major depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and are a common cause of functional disability. However, the efficacy of pharmacological interventions for improving the cognitive deficits in these disorders is limited. As pro-cognitive pharmacological treatments are lacking, we aimed to review whether thyroid hormones or drugs that target prolactin may become potential candidates for ‘repurposing’ trials aiming to improve cognition. We conducted a narrative review focused on thyroid hormones and prolactin as potential target...

California-based psychologist Ryan Howes, Ph.D, is a big believer in the power of stories to transform how we see therapy. “In a society where we still hear statements like ‘only crazy people go to therapy’ or ‘you need therapy!’ as an insult, it can be easy to think that psychotherapy is a strange and mysterious endeavor for other people,” Howes said. However, when we hear personal stories from individuals of different backgrounds and circumstances—perhaps backgrounds and circumstances that mirror our own—we realize that therapy can be transformative for us, too.   This...
