Looking at patients with ‘major affective disorder’ cheap topamax 100mg with amex, Machón ea(1997) of Helsinki found an increased likelihood of exposure to an epidemic of influenza (A2/Singapore virus) during the second trimester compared to controls discount topamax 100mg visa. Cotter ea (2001) found a reduction in reduced neuronal size and glial cell density in the anterior cingulate cortex of major depressives at postmortem. Relatively small cingulate volumes in children and adolescents with bipolar disorder have been reported,(Kaur ea, 2005) suggesting that such may be the case from early in the illness course. Geomagnetic storms have been suggested as a cause of depression in susceptible individuals. They might 1300 desynchronise pineal circadian rhythms or they might disrupt pineal melatonin synthesis via actions on serotonergic or adrenergic systems. Such storms could, according to the theory, act on cell membrane permeability, cause increased calcium channel activity, or the retinal rods could act as magnetoreceptors. Melatonin secretion is fairly contant within individuals but varies widely between individuals. Also, light therapy may be useful in the treatment of depression lasting more than two years. Neuroticism did not predict amount of mood change following acute tryptophan depletion in healthy volunteers (but it did moderate performance on a verbal fluency test). Tryptophan hydroxylase A779 allele more common among deliberate self-harm subjects v controls. Beta-arrestin-1 levels reduced in white blood cells in depressives and elevated in rat brain by antidepressants. Presence of lifetime history of depression in Alzheimer’s disease corresponds to increased Alzheimer-related neuropathological changes in the hippocampus – more pronounced if depression occurs early during the disease process. A number of studies suggested that the closer the lesion is to the frontal pole on the dominant side, and the further away from the pole on the opposite side, the more likely is the person to be depressed. However, Carson ea (2000) found no support for a link between the site of a lesion and risk of depression. The authors point out that the areas affected are involved in emotion processing and regulation of stress. Such hypertrophy has been found in depressives post mortem and in completed suicides. Represents functional/reversible problem) whereas no real improvement in bilateral medial/dorsolateral/parietal (? It has been said that intracellular sodium rises in depression, and rises still further in mania. Vanadium poisoning of the sodium pump was a popular suggestion as a cause of affective disturbance during the 1980s, patients being subjected to massive doses of ascorbic acid as a putative antidote. Isotretinoin (Isotrex, Isotrexin, Roaccutane), a vitamin A derivative used for severe acne, has been blamed for depression, psychosis and suicide. Whilst great care is required to monitor for depression is cases treated with isotretinoin, it should be recalled that acne itself is commonly associated with depression (Anonymous, 2003) and the literature is far from unanimous in its findings re isotretinoin. It can also cause confusion/delirium, agitated restlessness, psychosis, and, less commonly, hypersexuality. There seems to be an increased 1309 risk of coronary artery disease in depressives. Bone mineral density (spine and hip) has been found to be lower in depressives than in controls, especially in females. Presumed intrauterine (second trimester) starvation in males during a Dutch famine has been found to correlate with later affective psychosis, but not with neurotic depression. Similar considerations probably apply to the Swedish findings of Mittendorfer-Rutz ea (2004) who reported that multiparity and low maternal education predicted suicide attempt in offspring, whereas as restricted foetal growth and teenage motherhood were associated with both completed suicide and attempted suicide in the offspring. Both B12 and folate deficiency may be associated with depression, although they are not always primary. There is no good evidence to link affective psychosis or mania to problems at birth. Overactivity, pressured speech, and racing thoughts during bipolar depression should alert the therapist to enhanced risk for conversion to mania with antidepressant drugs. Ader ea (1995) wondered if there might be a latent herpes infection that becomes reactivated during depression. The finding of an increase in soluble receptors for interleukin-2 receptors in the plasma of suicide attempters might indicate either a state or trait marker. Genetics Genetic factors are often thought to be important in severe cases of depression and in cases with somatic symptoms whereas environmental factors may appear to be more important in milder cases of depression. Also, single genetic abnormalities can only explain a small part of all mood disorders.
