PURPOSE: The study aim was to test different definitions of mixed depression, defined as a depression with concurrent hypomanic symptoms.
METHODS: Consecutive 245 non-tertiary care outpatients with bipolar II disorder (BP-II) and 189 non-tertiary care outpatients with major depressive disorder (MDD) were interviewed (off psychoactive drugs) using the Structured Clinical Interview for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition Axis I Disorders-Clinician Version, ...

BACKGROUND: Polarity is the pillar of the current categorical unipolar-bipolar division of mood disorders. However, genetic studies on these polarity-based phenotypes have been largely inconclusive. Recent clinical and epidemiological studies seem to support more of a continuum than a splitting of mood disorders. A reshaping of the classification of mood disorders thus seems required. Age-at-onset and recurrence have been suggested to be more clinically and genetically useful in the ...

Agitated “unipolar” depression re-conceptualized as a depressive mixed state: implications for the antidepressant-suicide controversy
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: The nosologic status of agitated depression is unresolved. Are they unipolar (UP) or bipolar (BP)? Are they mixed states? Even more controversial is the notion that antidepressants might play some role in the suicidality of such patients (Akiskal and Mallya, 1987) [Akiskal, H.S., Mallya, G., 1987. Criteria for the "soft" bipolar spectrum: treatment implications. Psychopharmacol Bull. 23, 68-73].
METHODS: After excluding all patients with history of hypomanic episodes ...

Delineating bipolar II mixed states in the Ravenna–San Diego collaborative study: the relative prevalence and diagnostic significance of hypomanic features during major depressive episodes
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Depressive mixed state (DMX), defined by hypomanic features during a major depressive episode (MDE) is under-researched. Accordingly, study aims were to find DMX prevalence in unipolar major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar II depressive phase, to delineate the most common hypomanic signs and symptoms during DMX, and to assess their sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of DMX and bipolar II.
METHODS: 161 unipolar and bipolar II MDE psychotropic drug- and ...

BACKGROUND: Depression with anger may be more common in bipolar disorders. The aim of the study was to assess whether major depressive disorder (MDD) with anger could be included in the bipolar spectrum, by comparing it to MDD without anger and to bipolar II disorder.
METHODS: Consecutive outpatients (281 bipolar II disorder and 202 MDD) presenting for major depressive episode (MDE) treatment were interviewed with the DSM-IV structured clinical interview. Clinical variables used to ...

Dose–response relationship between number of comorbid anxiety disorders in adolescent bipolar/unipolar disorders, and psychosis, suicidality, substance abuse and familiality
[ PUBLICATION ]
OBJECTIVES: To ascertain rates of panic, obsessive-compulsive (OCD) and social phobic disorders among adolescents with bipolar disorder (BP), unipolar major depressive disorder (MDD) and psychiatric comparison patients, to assess their relationships to suicidality, psychosis, comorbidity patterns and familiality.
METHODS: The first author (SCD) interviewed 313 Latino adolescents using a structured interview based on the SCID. Family history was ascertained by live interview or interview ...

Toward a validation of a new definition of agitated depression as a bipolar mixed state (mixed depression)
[ PUBLICATION ]
PURPOSE: As psychotic agitated depression is now a well-described form of mixed state during the course of bipolar I disorder, we sought to investigate the diagnostic validity of a new definition for agitated (mixed) depression in bipolar II (BP-II) and major depressive disorder (MDD).
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three hundred and thirty six consecutive outpatients presenting with major depressive episodes (MDE) but without history of mania were evaluated with the Structured Clinical ...

Recent studies showed that depressive mixed state (DMX) (major depressive episode [MDE] with few hypomanic symptoms) was common among depressed outpatients. The aim of the present study was to find a clinicallly useful definition of DMX. A useful definition could be one increasing the probability of making the correct diagnosis of bipolar II. Different definitions of DMX were tested by comparing the sensitivity, specificity, and predictive power for the diagnosis of bipolar II. Three ...

BACKGROUND: "Hostile depression" has unofficially long been described as a depressive subtype, but since DSM-III, the affect has been made a defining characteristic of borderline personality disorder. The related affect of irritability in DSM-IV-TR subsumes various hostile nuances and is included in the stem question for mood disorders--especially for hypomanic episodes; in children, it is nonetheless a sign of depression. Then, there is the unofficial more general concept of depression ...

Bipolar II Disorder
[ PUBLICATION ]
Bipolar II disorder (BP-II) is defined, by DSM-IV, as recurrent episodes of depression and hypomania. Hypomania, according to DSM-IV, requires elevated (euphoric) and/or irritable mood, plus at least three of the following symptoms (four if mood is only irritable): grandiosity, decreased need for sleep, increased talking, racing thoughts, distractibility, overactivity (an increase in goal-directed activity), psychomotor agitation and excessive involvement in risky activities. This ...

Underdiagnosis and misdiagnosis of bipolar-II disorder (BP-II) as a major depressive disorder (MDD) are frequently reported. The study aim was to find which symptoms of depression could be possible cross-sectional markers of BP-II, in order to reduce underdiagnosing BP-II.
METHODS: Consecutive 379 BP-II and 271 MDD major depressive episode (MDE) outpatients were interviewed with the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV, the Hypomania Interview Guide, and the Family History Screen, by ...

How best to identify a bipolar-related subtype among major depressive patients without spontaneous hypomania: Superiority of age at onset criterion over recurrence and polarity?
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: History of high depressive recurrence (without history of mania/hypomania) has been proposed as a mood subtype close to bipolar disorders. Herein we test whether this is the best approach to this question.
METHODS: We systematically evaluated consecutive 224 Major Depressive (MDD) and 336 Bipolar II Disorders (BP-II) outpatients in a private practice, by the SCID for DSM-IV (modified for better probing hypomania by Akiskal and Benazzi [Akiskal, H.S., Benazzi, F., 2005. ...

Post‐traumatic stress disorder among adolescents with bipolar disorder and its relationship to suicidality
[ PUBLICATION ]
OBJECTIVES: The aims of this cross-sectional pilot study were to ascertain the rates of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among adolescents with bipolar disorder (BPD) and major depressive disorder (MDD) relative to a comparison group comprised of non-affectively ill patients, and to determine whether PTSD is related to suicidal ideation and attempts. The impetus for the study was born of clinical impressions derived in the course of routine clinical practice.
METHODS: Patients were ...

Gender, suicidality and bipolar mixed states in adolescents
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between mixed states and suicidality among adolescent outpatients presenting with a DSM-IV defined major depressive episode (MDE).
METHODS: Two-hundred and forty-seven adolescents meeting the criteria for MDE were screened for the presence of concurrent, intra-MDE hypomania/mania (i.e., mixed states). All patients were asked whether they had current suicidal ideation or had recently attempted any self-destructive ...
