2.55 psychiatric diagnoses and treatment in wolfram syndrome
Wolfram syndrome (WS) is a rare genetic disorder typically characterized by diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, optic nerve atrophy, visual impairment, hearing loss, and progressive deterioration in motor function. In the majority of cases, the disorder is caused by a variant in the WFS1 gene. WFS1 codes for a protein called wolframin in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane, which protects cells from apoptosis during the ER stress response. Existing literature suggests that WS may have psychiatric manifestations, but this needs further study. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

A high prevalence of anxiety in children among subjects with developmental disorders and with ASD is reported. ASD comprises many conditions characterized by heterogeneous symptoms with or without comorbidities. Anxiety may present itself with different expressions related to each clinical ASD phenotype. In this work, we report common anxiety forms in ASD, level-1 (DSM-5) subjects and impact on ASD. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

2.61 a lifespan approach to examining differences in amygdalar and hippocampal volume among individuals with and without social and generalized anxiety disorders
The amygdala (AMG) and hippocampus (HC) are limbic areas that support fear processing relevant to anxiety. Some work shows that patients with social anxiety (SAD) and generalized anxiety (GAD) exhibit larger AMG and smaller HC volumes relative to healthy control subjects. However, findings are mixed, perhaps because studies rarely compare anxiety subtypes, account for comorbidity, or use a lifespan approach. We aimed to characterize differences in AMG and HC sizes among children, adolescents, and adults with/without SAD and GAD. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

3.32 might maternal perinatal anxiety predict infant ’s early social abilities? new insights from a longitudinal study on low-risk dyads
Previous studies investigated the relationship between maternal anxiety disorder and children ’s outcomes.

However, little is known about this relationship in dyads with mothers without any symptoms of psychopathology . Our study investigated the relationship between maternal perinatal anxiety and infant’s early social abilities in low-risk dyads.
