In both groups obsessive attachment style was the highest among the attachment styles. In patients with panic disorder there was no significant correlation between adult separation anxiety and/or existence of agoraphobia and attachment styles.

Abstract Bortezomib, an antineoplastic agent used in Multiple Myeloma, is a modified dipeptidyl boronic acid that is selectively and reversibly attached to the 26S proteasome. Bortezomib may be combined with corticosteroids in treatment-resistant multiple myeloma patients. Corticosteroids can cause many psychiatric disorders ncluding mania, depression, psychosis, delirium, suicide and aggression. To date only one case of mania associated with the use of bortezomib was reported in which the patient responded to the treatment with olanzapine and valproic acid. In this article, we present a 57-year-old female with mu...
