Previous research characterizes obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) as a complex neurobehavioral disorder that may have multiple etiologies ( den Braber et al., 2008 ). This study analyzed neurocognitive function and change in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) to characterize OCD. Neurocognitive function and rCBF were examined in medically naïve patients(More)
Here, we report a female patient developing neuroleptic malignant syndrome following the use of a combination of clozapine and haloperidol. Subsequently, the patient presented withdrawal effects after an abrupt discontinuation of clozapine. Psychiatrists not aware of possible clozapine-withdrawal effects may misdiagnose as a part of the primary mental(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the magnetic resonance spectroscopy characteristics of lenticular nucleus in Bipolar II disorder and its relation with cognitive function. METHODS Thirty Bipolar II disorder patients in hospital from 2012 September to 2013 April and twenty healthy controls were evaluated with Multi-Voxel 1H-MRS scans on lenticular nucleus to assess(More)
Valproate (VPA) is a medication that is widely used in the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as epilepsy and bipolar disorder. Valproate-induced hyperammonemic encephalopathy (VHE) is a rare central nervous system adverse effect of this medication that is characterized by impaired consciousness, which can range from drowsiness to(More)
To analyze the correlation between the pharmacotherapy response and the characteristics of the pre-treatment regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT) was used to determine the pre-treatment rCBF in 30 OCD patients and 30 normal controls. Based on their(More)
Few studies have shown that topiramate may induce psychiatric symptoms and metabolic disorders, respectively. Here, we reported a 13-year-old female who presented with topiramate-induced hallucinations and comorbid renal tubular acidosis. She had a history of psychiatric illness and had been taking the medication for 3 months without prior side effects.(More)
This study was designed to explore the relationship between pituitary microadenoma and psychosis and to evaluate the role that prolactin plays in pituitary microadenoma and comorbid psychosis. In this study, the prolactin serum levels were compared between 74 first-episode drug-naive patients with a pituitary microadenoma with psychosis (PMP), and 58(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the change characteristics of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and its correlation with curative efficacy in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). METHODS The images of rCBF and computed tomography (CT) were acquired from 30 OCD and 30 normal controls by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and CT. The(More)
