Department of Psychiatry, Nara Medical University, 840 Shijocho Kashihara, Nara, 634-8522 Japan.

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2020 7;19:30. Epub 2020 May 7.

Methods: We followed the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) guidelines to conduct this review. Read More

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2020 9;19:31. Epub 2020 May 9.

4Iranian Research Center on Aging, University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences (USWR), Tehran, Iran.

Background: The novel approaches to psychiatric classification assume that disorders, contrary to what was previously thought, are not completely separate phenomena. In this regard, in addition to symptom-based criteria, disturbances are also considered on the basis of lower level components. With this viewpoint, identifying common biochemical markers would be beneficial in adopting a comprehensive strategy for prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Read More

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2020 26;19:13. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Alabama School of Medicine, Birmingham, AL 35294 USA.

Help-seeking intention and associated factors towards mental illness among residents of Mertule Mariam town, East Gojam Zone, Amhara Region, Ethiopia: a mixed-method study.

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2020 26;19:12. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

2Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine and Health Science, Wollo University, Dessie, Ethiopia.

Despite this, literature is limited in the area and community-based studies are scarce in Africa in general and Ethiopia in particular concerning help-seeking intention towards mental illness and its associated factors.

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2019 17;18:21. Epub 2019 Sep 17.

2Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Semmelweis University, Kútvölgyi út 4, Budapest, 1125 Hungary.

The current study aimed to develop a complex and comprehensive model of temperament and character by empirically combining relevant existing theories.

Methods: The study included 734 healthy general population subjects aged 40. Read More

Ann Gen Psychiatry 2019 5;18:18. Epub 2019 Sep 5.

2Department of Psychiatry, Chosun University College of Medicine, 309 Pilmun-daero, Dong-gu, Gwangju, 61452 Republic of Korea.

However, a brain tumor synchronous with immunosuppressant neurotoxicity has never been reported in a kidney transplant recipient. Herein, we report the first case of possible tacrolimus neurotoxicity with a meningioma manifesting as manic-like psychosis after kidney transplantation. Read More
