Psychosomatics 2018 Sep 8. Epub 2018 Sep 8.

Department of Gastroenterology, School of Medicine, University of Patras, Patras, Greece. Electronic address:

Background: In recent years, the adoption of unhealthy dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle has led to an alarming increase in the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in pediatric populations.

The 2018 ISHLT/APM/AST/ICCAC/STSW Recommendations for the Psychosocial Evaluation of Adult Cardiothoracic Transplant Candidates and Candidates for Long-term Mechanical Circulatory Support.

Psychosomatics 2018 Sep - Oct;59(5):415-440. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.

The psychosocial evaluation is well-recognized as an important component of the multifaceted assessment process to determine candidacy for heart transplantation, lung transplantation, and long-term mechanical circulatory support (MCS). However, there is no consensus-based set of recommendations for either the full range of psychosocial domains to be assessed during the evaluation, or the set of processes and procedures to be used to conduct the evaluation, report its findings, and monitor patients' receipt of and response to interventions for any problems identified. This document provides recommendations on both evaluation content and process. Read More

Psychosomatics 2018 Aug 2. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH.

Objective: Associations between the crude capture of polyallergy-also known as multiple chemical sensitivity or multiple drug intolerance syndrome-and mental health/functional somatic syndrome disorders, healthcare utilization, or other clinical phenomenon have not been examined extensively.

Methods: An IRB-approved retrospective chart review of all patients between age 18 and 70 who had a clinical encounter at a large medical center between 2009 and 2014. Patients were stratified into 4 categories based on the absolute number of chart-documented allergies: (1) no allergies; (2) normal allergy (1-4 allergies); (3) polyallergy (5-9 allergies); and (4) "ultrapolyallergy," (≥10 allergies), which were corroborated through a sensitivity analysis.

Pediatric Catatonia: A Case Series-Based Review of Presentation, Evaluation, and Management.

Psychosomatics 2018 Nov 31;59(6):531-538. Epub 2018 May 31.

Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA; Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.
