Wilson's disease neuropsychiatry

Bradleigh D Hayhow, Islam Hassan, Jeffrey C L Looi, Francesco Gaillard, Dennis Velakoulis, Mark Walterfang
BACKGROUND: Movement disorders, particularly those associated with basal ganglia disease, have a high rate of comorbid neuropsychiatric illness. METHODS: We consider the pathophysiological basis of the comorbidity between movement disorders and neuropsychiatric illness by 1) reviewing the epidemiology of neuropsychiatric illness in a range of hyperkinetic movement disorders, and 2) correlating findings to evidence from studies that have utilized modern neuroimaging techniques to investigate these disorders...

The present note provides an overview of the historical development of neurology and its current status in the People's Republic of China, against the backdrop of the current massive transformation of Chinese society. We trace the origins of neurology in China to missionary medicine during the Republican period (1911-1949), and describe how the discipline grows with difficulty throughout the subsequent decades (1950-1976). We then introduce an influential legacy of the post-revolutionary period, the ideal of integrating traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Western medicine, and briefly describe recent efforts to modernize medical education and training...

Based on internal medicine and psychiatry and in close connection with pathology, the neurosciences in Austria began to develop in the 18(th) century, e.g. with the description of inflammation of the central nervous system by J. P. Franck (1745-1823) and the "phrenology" by F. J. Gall (1745-1823). Under the influence of the great pathologist C. Rokitansky (1804-1878), the tripode of the Vienna neurology - L. Türck (1810-1868), as initiator, Th. v. Meynert (1833-1892) the activator, and H. Obersteiner (1847-1922) as the founder of the Vienna Neurological Institute, presented basic contributions to the morphology and pathology of the nervous system...

Degenerative diseases of the basal ganglia, such as Huntington's disease (HD), Parkinson's disease, and Wilson's disease, are characterized by motor, cognitive, and psychiatric manifestations. HD, in particular, can be considered a paradigmatic neuropsychiatric disorder that has all three components of the "Triadic Syndromes": dyskinesia, dementia, and depression. The authors examine the phenomenology, prevalence, and management of psychiatric disturbances occurring in diseases of the basal ganglia. They address psychiatric conditions such as depression, mania, psychosis, obsessive-compulsive disorders, aggression, irritability, apathy, sexual disorders, and delirium, discussing subtleties of diagnosis, and making reference to more unusual disorders of the basal ganglia, such as postencephalitic parkinsonism and Fahr's disease...

Psychiatric symptoms are frequently encountered in Wilson's disease (WD). The recent resurgence of interest in neuropsychiatry has led to a more detailed consideration of the psychopathology associated with WD. As suggested by Wilson, disorders of affect, behavior and personality are the most common features. Contrary to Wilson's view, recent evidence suggests that such symptoms have an organic basis. Cognitive impairments tend to be mild and improve with treatment. There is a lack of recent evidence for an association between WD and organic delusional disorders...
