Incidence and diagnostic stability of ICD-10 acute and transient psychotic disorders.
TLDR
Although demographic differences from schizophrenia are topics that deserve further research, poor diagnostic stability argues against attempts to separate ATPD from borderland disorders. Expand
Excess mortality of acute and transient psychotic disorders: comparison with bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia
To investigate mortality and causes of death of short‐lived psychotic disorders, by carrying out a comparison with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Diagnostic validity of ICD-10 acute and transient psychotic disorders and DSM-5 brief psychotic disorder
TLDR
It is important that short-lived psychotic disorders are kept apart from longer-lasting psychotic disorders both for clinical practice and research, and close overlap between ATPDs and BPD could enhance the understanding of these conditions. Expand
Diagnostic and Prognostic Significance of Brief Limited Intermittent Psychotic Symptoms (BLIPS) in Individuals at Ultra High Risk
TLDR
Brief Limited Intermittent Psychotic Symptoms are most likely to fulfill the ATPD criteria, mainly acute schizophrenic subtypes and have an extreme high risk of psychosis. Expand
Acute and transient psychotic disorders (ICD-10 F23): a review from a European perspective
TLDR
No evidence supports the view that the traditional conditions subsumed under ATPD all refer to this diagnostic category and the lack of defining features and poor prognostic validity argue against the separation of ATPD from borderland categories. Expand
Epidemiology, Course and Outcome of Acute Polymorphic Psychotic Disorder: Implications for ICD-11
TLDR
It is suggested that acute polymorphic psychotic disorder exhibits distinctive features and challenge the current approach to the classification of ATPDs. Expand
Long-term stability of acute and transient psychotic disorders
TLDR
The low diagnostic stability of ATPDs reflects the lack of clearly defining features and argues against their validity as a distinct category. Expand
Variations in incidence and age of onset of acute and transient psychotic disorders
TLDR
Findings are likely to reflect the heterogeneity of the clinical features encompassed by ATPDs, and contribute to building a case for their revision in ICD-11, as well as highlighting differences from schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. Expand
Short-term course and outcome of acute and transient psychotic disorders: Differences from other types of psychosis with acute onset
TLDR
Although ATPDs fared better over the short-term than other acute psychoses, their diagnostic stability is relatively low, pointing out differences from other types of psychosis. Expand
Continuity of care from child and adolescent to adult mental health services: evidence from a regional survey in Northern Italy
TLDR
It is suggested that a relatively small number of adolescents moved to AMHS and are likely to reflect the configuration of local mental health services and alternative care available, mainly for those with less-severe mental disorders. Expand
