[Peripartum management plan for patients with mental illnesses : Strategies to reduce the risk of postpartum relapse].
DISCUSSION: Careful planning and monitoring with a structured perinatal management plan can reduce the risk of relapse in the perinatal period and thus support women with a history of mental disorder in the transition to motherhood. Therefore, the management concept employed in Bonn contributes to the major goal of current peripartum psychiatric care in developing effective prevention strategies for women at high risk.

[Late-onset depression : Pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment].
Abstract Late-onset depression (LOD) is defined as depression manifesting for the first time in later life. Up to now, there has been no exact definition of the lower age limit for LOD. Psychopathological symptoms of LOD do not fundamentally differ from depression in other phases of life; however, cognitive deficits are typically more pronounced. The LOD is associated with an increased risk of developing dementia. Imaging studies show reduction in gray matter volume and white matter lesions caused by vascular diseases. The occurrence of depression with vascular lesions of the brain is also referred to as &quo...

CONCLUSION: There is an abundance of neurobiological research approaches, which are closely associated with sociopsychiatric topics, such as social cognition.

On the contrary, the options which could emerge from a synthesis must be used in research and clinical practice. PMID: 27491537 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Der Nervenarzt)

[Immune-mediated neuropathies].
Abstract The Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) are the most common immune-mediated polyneuropathies, which can show variable clinical and electrophysiological manifestations. Rarer immune-mediated neuropathies encompass paraproteinemic neuropathies (PPN), multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and vasculitic neuropathies. The diagnosis usually relies on the history of symptom evolution, distribution of nerve dysfunction and particularly on characteristic features in nerve conduction studies, aided by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination and nerve biopsy f...

CONCLUSIONS: If possible, epilepsy patients should be treated with a low-dose monotherapy during pregnancy and valproic acid should be avoided.

CONCLUSION: In the medicine of the time, syphilis is just emerging as the suspected cause, and the term "progressive paralysis" is coined as typical for the course. Proof of Treponema pallidum infection was not available until 1905. Nevertheless, the clinical signs strongly refer to the course of neurosyphilis. People close to Robert, in particular his wife Clara and the circle of friends around Brahms and Joachim, cared intensively for him and suffered under the therapeutic isolation. The medical records and disease-related letters contradict the theory that Schumann was disposed of by being put into the psychia...

During this phase, mental disorders occur as first onset or, more often, as recurrent or ongoing chronic conditions with onset and further course of illness in- or outside the peripartal period. No clear risk increase exists for the more prevalent mental disorders such as depressive and anxiety disorders during this period, whereas there is an increased risk for bipolar disorder. Peripartal mental disorders may impact fetal and child development through different mechanisms. The International Statistic...

Data are lacking, but several psychotherapeutic and biological treatments as well as noninvasive brain stimulation procedures have been investigated to treat depressive episodes and anxiety disorders in pregnancy and the breast feeding. ...

In the group with active listening schooled as an attitude, the response to the feelings of the standardized simulation patients was significantly better from the perspectives of both participants and obse...

CONCLUSION: All MS patients suffering from fatigue should be questioned with respect to EDS and if necessary sleep medical investigations should be carried out; however, pure fatigue without accompanying EDS can also be caused by a sleep disorder. Medications, particularly freely available antihistamines, can also increase fatigue. Furthermore, anemia, iron deficits, diabetes and hypothyroidism should be excluded. Self-assessment questionnaires show an overlap between depression and fatigue. Several studies have shown that cognitive behavioral therapy and various psychotherapeutic measures, such as vertigo training, progre...

Abstract Mental disorders are among the greatest medical and social challenges facing us. They can occur at all stages of life and are among the most important commonly occurring diseases. In Germany 28 % of the population suffer from a mental disorder every year, while the lifetime risk of suffering from a mental disorder is almost 50 %. Mental disorders cause great suffering for those affected and their social network. Quantitatively speaking, they can be considered to be among those diseases creating the greatest burden for society due to reduced productivity, absence from work and premature retir...

Abstract Stimulation has been performed experimentally and in small case series to treat epilepsy since the 1970s. Since the introduction of vagus nerve stimulation in 1997 and intracranial stimulation methods in 2011 into patient care, invasive stimulation has become a rapidly developing but infrequently used therapeutic option in Europe. Whereas vagus nerve stimulation is frequently used, particularly in the USA, intracranial stimulation differs in its regional availability. In order to improve the efficacy of stimulation, develop criteria for its use and assure low complication rates, a concentration on ex...

[Brivaracetam for add-on treatment in focal epilepsy].

A significant median reduction in seizures from 30.5 % to 53.1 % for 50 mg/day, from 32.5 % to 37.2 % for 100 mg/day and 35.6 % for 200 mg/day could be demonstrated.

This article focuses on the institutional development of neurology in Germany up to the rise to power of the National Socialists and the radical sociopolitical changes after 1933. A wide range of scattered secondary literature was assessed and evaluated. Additionally, some original sources are literally quoted and interpreted according to the context. Since the end of the nineteenth century a complicated process of separation from internal medicine and psychiatry led to the formation of a self-conscious discipline of neurology.

Delusional topics are limited to guilt, impoverishment and hypochondria. Kurt Schneider described these as being the three primordial fears of human beings. Psychotic depression is distinguished by the particular severity and frequency of the episodes of illness as well as by increased suicidal tendencies. Although one in five patients with a major depression experiences psychotic symptoms, this condition is all too easily overlooked and the appropriate thera...
