This article reports on the late diagnosis of a patient with panic disorder and comorbid major depression at the age of 51. Since genetic testing was not available before the 1990s, there might be many over 40-year-old patients, who remained undiagnosed. Psychiatric symptoms exhibit distinctive developmental trajectories and many of these exhibit an increase in incidence during adulthood. Hence, undiagnosed adult DiGeorge patients might present in psychiatric services. As in this case, a correct diagnosis of DiGeorge syndrome in adults may help to improve treatment and outcome.

AbstractDeficits in real-world executive functioning (EF) are a frequent characteristic of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, the predictive value of using performance-based and behavioral rating measures of EF when diagnosing ADHD remains unclear. The current study investigates the use of performance-based EF measures and a parent-report questionnaire with established ecological validity and clinical utility when diagnosing ADHD. Participants included 21 healthy controls, 21 ADHD —primary inattentive, and 21 ADHD—combined type subjects aged 6–15 years. A brief neuropsychologic...
