A recent study found that maternal antenatal depressive symptoms were associated with adverse infant general health outcomes and that gestational age, birth weight, and breastfeeding did not mediate the observed relationship. The authors suggested that antenatal depression can have a harmful effect on infant health through disturbed fetal programming driven by maternal symptoms and behaviors that influence the maternal and hence the fetal internal environment. The authors implied that interventions to diagnose and treat maternal depression can have a protective effect against disturbances in infant health...

Lithium induced primary hyperparathyroidism is an uncommon endocrine side effect of long term lithium therapy. We studied the case of a 67-year-old female patient on long term lithium therapy for bipolar affective disorder, who developed resistant hypercalcaemia and parathyroid adenoma which required parathyroidectomy. Furthermore, the effect of chronic lithium therapy on parathyroid glands and serum calcium levels, its pathogenesis, and management were reviewed. Periodic monitoring of serum calcium levels in patients on long term lithium therapy should be practiced...

Clozapine is superior to all other antipsychotics in treatment-resistant schizophrenia. However, metabolic side effects are common while treating patients with clozapine. Administering clozapine in a patient who already is diabetic involves careful weighing of risks and benefits. Here, we report our experience of starting clozapine in a known diabetic patient. Clozapine was started in a patient with treatment-resistant psychosis in view of suicidal risk. Her diabetes mellitus was under good control with oral medications...

Introduction: Antepartum anxiety and depression are two of the most common risk factors for the development of postpartum depression. Women are at a higher risk of developing depression and suffering from mental disorders during pregnancy and the postnatal period. Psychopathological symptoms during pregnancy have physiological consequences for the fetus, such as impaired blood flow leading to low birth weight, as well as cognitive delay and behavioral problems. Objectives: To screen antenatal women for common mental health disorders and to determine the factors associated with mental health disorders during pregnancy...

Background: Risperidone is one of commonly utilized antipsychotic in clinical practice.
