REVIEW
Carsten W Israel
Transient loss of consciousness represents one of the most frequent reasons for patients to present in the emergency room. Already at the very beginning, the diagnostic work-up is faced with fundamental questions: (1) Was it really a loss of consciousness? (2) Which department (neurology, cardiology, or others) should check the patient? (3) Is an in-hospital diagnostic work-up required? These questions can be answered from a meticulous patient history which needs to be adjusted to the individual case but also has to systematically go through a list of questions...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the presence of changes in vibration detection and pressure pain threshold in patients with burning-mouth syndrome (BMS). DESIGN OF THE STUDY: Case-control study. The sample was composed of 30 volunteers, 15 with BMS and 15 in the control group. The pressure-pain threshold (PPT) and vibration-detection threshold (VDT) were examined. The clinical evaluation was complemented with the McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ), Douleur Neuropathique 4 (DN4) and Beck Depression and Anxiety Inventories (BDI and BAI, respectively)...

OBJECTIVES: Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are a manifestation of conversion disorder among children but can be difficult to distinguish from epilepsy. We sought to identify characteristics that differentiate children with PNES from those with epilepsy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of children admitted with epilepsy or PNES to 45 children's hospitals from 2004 to 2014. Children with PNES ( n = 399) versus those with epilepsy ( n = 13 241) were compared on demographic and clinical characteristics, testing, treatment, and health care use...

OBJECTIVE: Globus sensation, a feeling of lump or something stuck in the throat, could be caused by structural, functional, and psychogenic diseases. Due to a possible multifactorial nature of the disease, neither diagnosing test battery nor standard treatment for globus sensation has been established. Therefore, a questionnaire to accurately identify globus patients and evaluate the severity of the disease is desired. Glasgow Edinburgh Throat Scale (GETS) is a 10-item questionnaire about the throat symptoms consisting of three subscales relating to dysphagia, globus sensation, and pain/swelling in the throat...

Objective: Causes such as childhood trauma, negative attitude about sexuality, inadequate sexual knowledge and education, relationship problems, and unconscious motivation are reported about psychosexual development in the etiology of genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorder (GPP/PD). There are few studies that focus directly on research etiology of GPP/PD and use structured scales. The aim of this study was to research childhood trauma and dissociation forms among women with GPP/PD. Patients and methods: Fifty-five women with GPP/PD according to the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and 61 healthy women with no complaints of sexual function as a control group, in the age range of 18-60 years, were included in this study...

OBJECTIVE: Mitigation of suicide risk by reducing access to lethal means, such as firearms and potentially lethal medications, is a highly recommended practice. To better understand groups of patients at risk of suicide in medical settings, the authors compared demographic and clinical risk factors between patients who died by suicide by using firearms or other means with matched patients who did not die by suicide (control group). METHODS: In a case-control study in 2016 from eight health care systems within the Mental Health Research Network, 2,674 suicide cases from 2010-2013 were matched to a control group (N=267,400)...

OBJECTIVES: Over 40% of adolescents with chronic pain report experiencing pain dismissal, which is a response from another individual that is perceived as diminishing, denying, or disbelieving an individual's report of pain. Pain dismissal by physicians often leaves patients feeling discredited, which may discourage them from seeking and receiving proper treatment for their pain. The purpose of this study was to investigate how the 4 most commonly reported types of physician pain dismissal differentially affect individuals' reactions...

Autoimmune encephalopathies are clinically and immunologically heterogeneous disorders. At least 20 types of autoimmune encephalopathies have been discovered, with the most common type being Hashimoto encephalopathy. In clinical situations, we often observe that patients with autoimmune encephalopathy are misdiagnosed because they exhibit signs similar to those observed in functional psychogenic movement, conversion, or somatoform disorders. We clinically examined over 100 patients with autoimmune encephalopathy...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about somatic and psychiatric symptoms and perceived peer relationships of patients with psychogenic nonsyncopal collapse. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to compare somatic and psychiatric symptoms and other elements potentially related to functional neurological symptom disorders between youth with psychogenic nonsyncopal collapse and those with neurally mediated syncope. METHODS: Before testing, patients completed a structured interview and questionnaire addressing current symptoms, previous psychiatric diagnoses, referrals, diagnostic testing, prescribed medications, and patient self-ratings of anxiety, depression, and perceived peer relationships...

While the usage of illicit drugs in itself carries significant health risks and associated toxicities, drugs that are adulterated to give them volume, alter their psychogenic properties, and make them cheaper to produce are to be considered even more dangerous. Cocaine is one of them, and it is now most commonly being adulterated with levamisole. We report a case of a 37-year-old female with the chief complaint of painful skin lesions and wounds on both of her upper and lower extremities for three weeks duration...

PURPOSE: Questionnaires investigating semiology and comorbidities of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) have been used mainly to help physicians expedite referrals to epilepsy centres for confirmation of diagnosis rather than as alternative diagnostic tool when video-EEG monitoring (VEM), the current gold standard, is not available or is inconclusive. METHODS: We developed one structured questionnaire for patients, exploring subjective experiences and vulnerabilities and one for eyewitnesses, focused on features observable during typical events to study prospectively 50 consecutive adult patients with PNES or epileptic seizures (ES) admitted for VEM...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the contribution of demographics, injury type, pain, and psychological factors on postconcussive symptoms. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Recently injured (n = 54) and noninjured (n = 184) adults were recruited from a hospital emergency department or the community. Thirty-eight individuals met the diagnostic criteria for a mild traumatic brain injury and 16 individuals received treatment for a minor traumatic non-brain injury. MAIN MEASURES: Standardized tests were administered to assess 4 postconcussion symptom types and theorized predictors including a "physiogenic" variable (injury type) and "psychogenic" variables (symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress) within 1 month of the injury...

The thalamus is a critical module in the circuit which has been associated with movement disorders including dystonia. This circuit extends from cortex to striatum to pallidum to the thalamic nucleus Ventral Lateral anterior (VLa) to cortex and can be studied by activity recorded during thalamic stereotactic surgery for the treatment of dystonia. Neuronal recordings in the VLa nucleus show low frequency modulation of firing that is correlated with and leads the low frequency modulation of EMG activity; this EMG activity is characteristic of dystonia...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical outcomes in adolescents diagnosed with psychogenic low-back pain and hysterical paralysis and to evaluate the efficacy of differential diagnosis methods. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The incidence of low-back pain in adolescence is similar to that in adults, but the causes of low-back pain are difficult to determine in most cases. For these patients, a definitive diagnosis of psychogenic low-back pain and hysterical paralysis as well as adequate treatment are clinically important to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Low-cost evidence-based tools are needed to facilitate the early identification of patients with possible psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES). Prior to accurate diagnosis, patients with PNES do not receive interventions that address the cause of their seizures and therefore incur high medical costs and disability due to an uncontrolled seizure disorder. Both seizures and comorbidities may contribute to this high cost. METHODS: Based on data from 1,365 adult patients with video-electroencephalography-confirmed diagnoses from a single center, we used logistic and Poisson regression to compare the total number of comorbidities, number of medications, and presence of specific comorbidities in five mutually exclusive groups of diagnoses: epileptic seizures (ES) only, PNES only, mixed PNES and ES, physiologic nonepileptic seizurelike events, and inconclusive monitoring...

Adolescent physical abuse impairs emotional development and evokes cingulate pathologies, but its neuronal and circuit substrates are unknown. Conditioning adolescent rabbits with noxious colorectal distension for only 2 h over 3 weeks simulated the human child abuse in amplitude, frequency, and duration. Thermal withdrawal thresholds were unchanged suggesting that sensitized spinal mechanisms may not be operable. Unchanged weight, stools, colorectal histology, and no evidence of abdominal pain argue against tissue injury or irritable bowel syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Clopidogrel is an irreversible antagonist of P2Y12 receptors (P2Y12 Rs) used as an antiplatelet drug to reduce risk of thrombosis. P2Y12 Rs are expressed in gastrointestinal (GI) tract where they might regulate GI function. AIM: To evaluate if blockade of P2Y12 Rs by clopidogrel is associated with higher incidence of GI symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of our institutional database was conducted for a 13-year period...

Low back pain (LBP) is accompanied by the development of pain syndrome that spreads into the leg in 25-57% of patients. This is an important factor predicting the risk of transition of pain from acute to chronic and is an indirect indicator of disease severity. It is often impossible to specify the primary mechanism facilitated pain irradiation in lumboischialgia because many structures can cause analogous symptoms. Mechanisms of development of LBP are represented by nociceptive, neuropathic and psychogenic components...

Low back pain is one of the most common causes of disability in the world. Discogenic process is the leading component of the disease. A significant part of these pain syndromes become chronic that leads to disability and social maladjustment. Chronic low back pain is hard to treat due to the several types of pathogenesis. The paper analyzes the etiology, mechanisms of development, clinical features, specific characteristics, pathomorphology of the formation of psychogenic component of pain. A role of comorbid psychogenic states involved in the chronization of low back pain is considered...
