Crossed obsessive-compulsive personality disorder and impaired theory of mind in temporal lobe epilepsy

TLDR
A selective association of a Theory of Mind dysfunction, including an impaired comparison of reality and others’ behavior, with an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder in a patient with left temporal lobe epilepsy and crossed cognitive functions is illustrated.

Neuroimaging and neuropsychological findings in pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder: a review an

TLDR
In examining pediatric OCD, neuropsychological performance may serve as a bridge between brain functioning and the phenomenology of the disorder, highlighting both the neural and cognitive developmental processes within the pediatric population.

Structural Brain MR Imaging Changes Associated with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

TLDR
This study suggests that OCD in MS may be caused by damage in the right frontotemporal cortex.

TLDR
Signs and symptoms of OCD could develop as a sign of focal brain lesion, particularly in multiple sclerosis, extrapyramidal disorders, epilepsy, less frequently - in other diseases.

The crossroads of anxiety: distinct neurophysiological maps for different symptomatic groups

TLDR
The findings support diffuse cortical instability in AD in general, with individual differences in information processing deficits and regional hyperactivities in OCD and PD.

Fantastic confabulation in right frontal lobe epilepsy

Electrical stimulation in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis alleviates severe obsessive-compulsive disorder

TLDR
It is found that electrical stimulation in the ALIC/BST area is safe and significantly decreases obsessions, compulsions, and associated anxiety and depressive symptoms, and improves global functioning in a blinded crossover trial, and at last follow-up.

Late-onset obsessive compulsive disorder associated with possible gliomatosis cerebri

TLDR
The current patient had obsessive images, anxiety, auditory hallucinations and seizures following (possible) gliomatosis cerebri, with onset around 69 years of age, and the need for careful screening of older patients with recently acquired OCD is illustrated.

Obsessive–compulsive symptoms in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy

Obsessive-compulsive disorder associated with brain lesions

TLDR
The results suggest that acquired and idiopathic OCDs may share a common pathophysiologic mechanism, and that structural damage to specific frontal-limbic-subcortical circuits plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acquired OCD.

Childhood obsessive-compulsive disorder and cingulate epilepsy

A psychological and neuroanatomical model of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

TLDR
The authors believe that this model explains the specific symptoms of OCD, and integrates the psychology and neuroanatomy of OCD better than previous models.

Neuroimaging and frontal-subcortical circuitry in obsessive-compulsive disorder

TLDR
A model is presented which describes how frontal-subcortical brain circuitry may mediate OCD symptomatology, and a hypothesis for how successful treatments may ameliorate symptoms, via their effects on circuit activity is suggested.
