[Autoantibody-associated schizophreniform psychoses: pathophysiology, diagnostics, and treatment].
s D Abstract In the context of secondary, possibly organic schizophreniform psychoses, autoantibody(AB)-associated autoimmune encephalitis (AE) plays an increasingly important role. If this is suspected, clinical investigations, including laboratory, magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analyses are recommended. The AB screening should include the most frequent ABs against neuronal cell surface antigens (NMDA receptor [R], CASPR2, LGI1, AMPA-R, GABAB-R), intracellular antigens (Hu, Ri, Yo, CV2/CRMP5, Ma2[Ta], amphiphysin, GAD65), thyroid tissue (TG, TPO, TRAK), and antin...

[Open-door psychiatry and community mental health work].
Abstract In connection with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, mental healthcare concepts increasingly focus on the prevention of violence and coercion. Hospital care with an open-door policy is linked with a reduction in violence and coercive measures. The authors describe a specific therapeutic milieu aiming to promote social resources and to reduce institutional exclusion. Open-door policies can be extended to and tied in with outreach community mental health work. Model projects according to § 64b of the German Social Code (SGB V) on interdisciplinary care en...

Abstract The prevalence rates of psychiatric disorders show a high risk for psychological impairment among physicians in Germany. There is evidence that the mental health of physicians exerts a significant influence on the quality of patient care. The estimated prevalence rates for burnout among physicians in Germany vary between 4% and 20% and for depression between 6% and 13%. In addition, there is evidence for impairment in the context of anxiety, suicidal tendencies and substance abuse. Importantly, work-related stress factors play an important role in the development of mental disorders among physic...

Abstract Despite identification of many genes causing neurodegenerative diseases in the last decades, development of disease-modifying treatments has been slow. Antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) therapeutics for spinal muscular atrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and transthyretin amyloidosis predict a robust future for ASOs in medicine. Perhaps the most significant advantage of ASO therapeutics over other small molecule approaches is that acquisition of the target sequence provides immediate knowledge of possible complementary oligonucleotide therapeutics. This review article describes the various types of AS...

To identify whether ADHD is a new, fashionable phenomenon in adults or whether early psychiatrists also saw such patients and how they classified them, this textbook is an essential source. Published between 1905 and 1915, it can be perceived as the culmination and at the same time terminal point of Kraepelin's conceptual and nosological work, which in turn marked the beginning of present-day psychiatric classification...

Abstract Vestibular schwannomas are primary benign tumors of the cerebellopontine angle originating either from the superior or the inferior vestibular nerve. Hearing deterioration is the leading symptom, which is why the widespread name for this tumor is acoustic neuroma. Due to the widespread availability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the diagnosis of vestibular schwannoma is frequently made in an early stage of the disease. In these cases a wait and scan policy is recommended. If the tumor grows, the therapeutic options are stereotactic radiotherapy or microsurgical tumor operation. Young patient ag...

DISCUSSION: Human rights are a regulative idea that provide a framework and direction for psychiatric actions; however, as an idea they compete with other ideas that try to control the trends of the day (the Zeitgeist) that determine daily practice. Not only the suppression of human rights from public consciousness, e. g. with the eugenics in the first third of the previous century but also their absolutization and poor implementation, as in the Italian psychiatry reform of 1978, damage psychiatric patients. Therefore, it appears necessary to sensitize psychiatrists to reflect on the Zeitgeist and its influence...

r T Abstract Coercion and violence in psychiatric inpatient settings represent a serious challenge. This challenge cannot be successfully met just by denying any legitimation of coercive measures or by assuming that violence from the patients' side is a fateful complication. Coercive measures are essentially approximative solutions of interpersonal and intrapersonal conflicts of autonomy, if these cannot be resolved without violence. Therefore, prevention of coercive measures can only succeed when the focus is on the needs and rights for autonomy of all subjects involved, including patients, relatives an...

Abstract Patients who are committed against their natural will are regularly accommodated in closed wards in Germany. Only a few clinics treat patients who have been involuntarily committed on open wards. On the basis of own clinical experience and relevant study results, closed and open wards are compared with respect to the extent of aggression and coercive measures, the risks of absconding and suicide. Compared to open wards, closed wards are unlikely to reduce the risk of absconding, do not result in a decreased suicide rate and do not result in a reduction of aggressive behavior. In contrast, c...
