An unstable trinucleotide-repeat region on chromosome 13 implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia: a common expansion locus. (1/313)

Larger CAG/CTG trinucleotide-repeat tracts in individuals affected with schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar affective disorder (BPAD) in comparison with control individuals have previously been reported, implying a possible etiological role for trinucleotide repeats in these diseases. Two unstable CAG/CTG repeats, SEF2-1B and ERDA1, have recently been cloned, and studies indicate that the majority of individuals with large repeats as detected by repeat-expansion detection (RED) have large repeat alleles at these loci. These repeats do not show association of large alleles with either BPAD or SCZ. Using RED, we have identified a BPAD individual with a very large CAG/CTG repeat that is not due to expansion at SEF2-1B or ERDA1. From this individual's DNA, we have cloned a highly polymorphic trinucleotide repeat consisting of (CTA)n (CTG)n, which is very long ( approximately 1,800 bp) in this patient. The repeat region localizes to chromosome 13q21, within 1.2 cM of fragile site FRA13C. Repeat alleles in our sample were unstable in 13 (5.6%) of 231 meioses. Large alleles (>100 repeats) were observed in 14 (1. 25%) of 1,120 patients with psychosis, borderline personality disorder, or juvenile-onset depression and in 5 (.7%) of 710 healthy controls. Very large alleles were also detected for Centre d'Etude Polymorphisme Humaine (CEPH) reference family 1334. This triplet expansion has recently been reported to be the cause of spinocerebellar ataxia type 8 (SCA8); however, none of our large alleles above the disease threshold occurred in individuals either affected by SCA or with known family history of SCA. The high frequency of large alleles at this locus is inconsistent with the much rarer occurrence of SCA8. Thus, it seems unlikely that expansion alone causes SCA8; other genetic mechanisms may be necessary to explain SCA8 etiology.  (+info)

Attentional mechanisms of borderline personality disorder. (2/313)

We consider whether disruption of a specific neural circuit related to self-regulation is an underlying biological deficit in borderline personality disorder (BPD). Because patients with BPD exhibit a poor ability to regulate negative affect, we hypothesized that brain mechanisms thought to be involved in such self-regulation would function abnormally even in situations that seem remote from the symptoms exhibited by these patients. To test this idea, we compared the efficiency of attentional networks in BPD patients with controls who were matched to the patients in having very low self-reported effortful control and very high negative emotionality and controls who were average in these two temperamental dimensions. We found that the patients exhibited significantly greater difficulty in their ability to resolve conflict among stimulus dimensions in a purely cognitive task than did average controls but displayed no deficit in overall reaction time, errors, or other attentional networks. The temperamentally matched group did not differ significantly from either group. A significant correlation was found between measures of the ability to control conflict in the reaction-time task and self-reported effortful control.  (+info)

Fluvoxamine reduces responsiveness of HPA axis in adult female BPD patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse. (3/313)

The aim of the study is to test whether fluvoxamine affects the function of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis in female borderline (borderline personality disorder, BPD) patients with and without a history of sustained childhood abuse. Special attention is given to the presence of comorbid major depressive disorder (MDD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The HPA axis of 30 female BPD patients with (n = 17) and without (n = 13) a history of sustained childhood abuse was challenged with a combined dexamethasone and corticotropin releasing hormone test (DEX/CRH test) before and after 6 (n = 14) and 12 (n = 16) weeks of fluvoxamine treatment (150 mg/day). Both 6- and 12-week fluvoxamine treatments were associated with a significant and robust reduction of the adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol response to the DEX/CRH test. The magnitude of the reduction was dependent on the presence of sustained childhood abuse, but not on the presence of comorbid MDD or PTSD: patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse showed the strongest reduction in ACTH and cortisol. In conclusion, Fluvoxamine treatment reduces the hyperresponsiveness of the HPA axis in BPD patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse. This effect is likely to be obtained in the first 6 weeks of treatment.  (+info)

Dialectical behaviour therapy for women with borderline personality disorder: 12-month, randomised clinical trial in The Netherlands. (4/313)

BACKGROUND: Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is widely considered to be a promising treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD). However, the evidence for its efficacy published thus far should be regarded as preliminary. AIMS: To compare the effectiveness of DBT with treatment as usual for patients with BPD and to examine the impact of baseline severity on effectiveness. METHOD: Fifty-eight women with BPD were randomly assigned to either 12 months of DBT or usual treatment in a randomised controlled study. Participants were recruited through clinical referrals from both addiction treatment and psychiatric services. Outcome measures included treatment retention and the course of suicidal, self-mutilating and self-damaging impulsive behaviours. RESULTS: Dialectical behaviour therapy resulted in better retention rates and greater reductions of self-mutilating and self-damaging impulsive behaviours compared with usual treatment, especially among those with a history of frequent self-mutilation. CONCLUSIONS: Dialectical behaviour therapy is superior to usual treatment in reducing high-risk behaviours in patients with BPD.  (+info)

'Still-face' interactions between mothers with borderline personality disorder and their 2-month-old infants. (5/313)

BACKGROUND: There is evidence that psychopathology in mothers may be associated with dysfunctional mother-infant interactions. AIMS: To investigate mother-infant relations when mothers have borderline personality disorder. METHOD: Eight mothers with borderline personality disorder and twelve mothers without psychiatric disorder were videotaped interacting with their 2-month-old infants in three successive phases of interaction: face-to-face play; an episode when the mother adopted a 'still face' and was unreactive; and a period when play interactions were resumed. The videotapes were rated by judges blind to the diagnostic group of the mother. RESULTS: The mothers with borderline personality disorder were more intrusively insensitive towards their infants. During the still-face period, their infants showed increased looking away and dazed looks. Following this, mother-infant interactions were less satisfying and their infants showed dazed looks and lowering of affect. CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis of borderline personality disorder is associated with a particular pattern of mother-infant interaction. The infants' responses to the still-face challenge might suggest dysfunctional self-regulation, but the developmental significance remains to be assessed.  (+info)

Dopamine dysfunction in borderline personality disorder: a hypothesis. (6/313)

Research on the biological basis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) has focused primarily on the serotonin model of impulsive aggression. However, there is evidence that dopamine (DA) dysfunction may also be associated with BPD. Pertinent research and review articles, identified by Medline searches of relevant topics, books, references from bibliographies, and conference proceedings from 1975 to 2003, were reviewed. Evidence of DA dysfunction in BPD derives from the efficacy of traditional and atypical antipsychotic agents in BPD, and from provocative challenges with amphetamine and methylphenidate of subjects with the disorder. In addition, human and animal studies indicate that DA activity plays an important role in emotion information processing, impulse control, and cognition. The results of this review suggest that DA dysfunction is associated with three dimensions of BPD, that is, emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, and cognitive-perceptual impairment. The main limitation of this hypothesis is that the evidence reviewed is circumstantial. There is no study that directly demonstrates DA dysfunction in BPD. In addition, the therapeutic effects of antipsychotic agents observed in BPD may be mediated by non-DA mechanisms of action. If the stated hypothesis is correct, DA dysfunction in BPD may result from genetic, developmental, or environmental factors directly affecting specific DA pathways. Alternatively, DA dysfunction in BPD may be a compensatory response to alterations in the primary neural systems that control emotion, impulse control, and cognition, and that are mediated by the brain's main neurotransmitters, glutamate, and GABA, or in one or more other neuromodulatory pathways such as serotonin, acetylcholine, and norepinephrine.  (+info)

Attachment studies with borderline patients: a review. (7/313)

Clinical theorists have suggested that disturbed attachments are central to borderline personality disorder (BPD) psychopathology. This article reviews 13 empirical studies that examine the types of attachment found in individuals with this disorder or with dimensional characteristics of BPD. Comparison among the 13 studies is handicapped by the variety of measures and attachment types that these studies have employed. Nevertheless, every study concludes that there is a strong association between BPD and insecure attachment. The types of attachment found to be most characteristic of BPD subjects are unresolved, preoccupied, and fearful. In each of these attachment types, individuals demonstrate a longing for intimacy and--at the same time--concern about dependency and rejection. The high prevalence and severity of insecure attachments found in these adult samples support the central role of disturbed interpersonal relationships in clinical theories of BPD. This review concludes that these types of insecure attachment may represent phenotypic markers of vulnerability to BPD, suggesting several directions for future research.  (+info)

Positron emission tomography of regional brain metabolic responses to a serotonergic challenge in major depressive disorder with and without borderline personality disorder. (8/313)

Previous neuroimaging studies of major depression have not controlled for the presence of personality disorders characterized by impulsive aggressive behavior, such as borderline personality disorder (BPD). Using positron emission tomography (PET), we studied regional glucose uptake in response to fenfluramine (FEN) in depressed subjects with BPD (n=11) and depressed patients without Cluster B Axis II disorders (n=8). Subjects were scanned while medication-free after a single blind placebo administration and after FEN on a second day. Brain responses were measured by PET imaging of [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and serial prolactin levels. Scans were compared at a voxel level using statistical parametric mapping. Correlations of changes in relative regional cerebral uptake (rCMRglu) with clinical measures were assessed. Depressed borderline patients had greater relative activity in parietotemporal cortical regions (BA 40, BA 22, and BA 42) before and after FEN activation compared to those without BPD. They also had less relative uptake in the anterior cingulate cortex (BA 32) at baseline compared to depressed patients without BPD and FEN abolished this difference. Impulsivity was positively correlated with rCMRglu in superior and middle frontal cortex (BA 6 and 44). Hostility was positively correlated with rCMRglu in temporal cortical regions (BA 21 and 22). In conclusions, borderline pathology in the context of a Major Depressive Disorder is associated with altered activity in parietotemporal and anterior cingulate cortical regions. Controlling for the presence of BPD in future imaging studies of mood disorders may elucidate similarities and differences in regional serotonergic function in these two often comorbid disorders.  (+info)

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a condition characterised by impulsive actions, mood instability, and chaotic relationships.
Affective instability is one of the most prominent symptoms in borderline personality disorder. Currently there are no prospective studies of treatment of this symptom with mood stabilizing medications. This study examines the effectiveness of lamotrigine compared to placebo in reducing emotional instability of several types in borderline patients. The types of emotional instability studied involve anger, anxiety, depression, and elation. Subjects entering this 12 week study will be blind to whether they are receiving active medication or placebo. They will be asked to report levels of instability in their mood on a weekly basis. They will also be asked weekly to rate the intensity of other symptoms of borderline personality disorder symptoms, such as unstable relationships, self-harm, and impulsive behaviors ...

Borderline personality disorder often occurs with other illnesses. This is called co-morbidity or having co-occurring disorders. This can make it hard to diagnose, especially if symptoms of other illnesses overlap with the BPD symptoms.. According to the NIMH-funded National Comorbidity Survey Replication-the largest national study to date of mental disorders in U.S. adults-about 85 percent of people with BPD also suffer from another mental illness.5 Over half the BPD population suffers from Major Depressive Disorder. When depression and BPD co-occur, the depression often does not lift (even with medication), until the borderline personality disorder symptoms improve.. Women with BPD are more likely to have co-occurring disorders such as major depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse or eating disorders. In men, BPD is more likely to accompany disorders such as substance abuse or antisocial personality disorder.. Most co-morbidities are listed below, followed by the estimated percent of ...

Borderline Personality Disorder is the most difficult to understand and diagnose mental illnesses. As a consequence there is little awareness of its existence in the general public. If there were greater awareness, more resources would be brought to the table to help these people. I believe the biggest problem is its name. Borderline means nothing in helping us understand the condition. I have proposed that we change the name to Faultfinding Personality Disorder based on the most important diagnostic criterion - chronic finding of fault with themselves and others due to their black-and-white thinking which leads to disturbed interpersonal relationships. To back this up I wrote the book Faultfinders: The impact of borderline personality disorder. I explained the condition using examples of numerous famous people to make the symptoms memorable. One of the examples was Brandon Marshall. I would be interested to hear what others think about a possible name change. ...
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is also known as emotional regulation disorder (ERD), emotional intensity disorder (EID), and unstable personality disorder (UPD). The expression borderline personality disorder evolved out ofthe term…
If you are a family member or friend of someone who is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, you may or may not have some understanding of what this label means. You also may or may not have overheard or participated in discussion, readings, or media about this very diagnostic label, and possibly gleaned from these discussions or readings an idea that the diagnosis implies that your friend or loved one is somehow burdened with intractable behaviors and symptoms. Typical examples of this might be: manipulative, self-harming, unpredictable, impulsive, or childlike. Among mental health labels, the Borderline Personality Disorder label has taken on a highly negative connotation. Understandably, trying to help or live with an individual who may be volatile and possibly suicidal can be frightening or even exhausting. Similarly, if you are in a relationship with an individual with the diagnosis of Borderline PD, you may not understand what drives your loved ones behaviors and may ...

Not many people are familiar with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), but 1% of the population suffers from it. This is another common co-occurring disorder seen paired with addiction to drugs or alcohol. Just like all other dual diagnoses, we cant just treat addiction and abstain from substances. We need to take care of the mental health related component as well. In this case, Borderline Personality Disorder.. Those with BPD live in internal worlds of chaos. They can be like an emotional tornado destroying things in its path, yet they feel bad about it when looking back at their damage. This doesnt help either. They get frustrated with feeling misunderstood, as well as not understanding others. People with BPD can feel drowned in feelings of hopelessness.. All these symptoms are a struggle to live through on a daily basis - for individuals with BPD and their loved ones. These symptoms are only fueled when combined with addiction. Adding drugs and alcohol to the mix when someone is already ...

AU - Soloff, Paul H.. AU - Hallquist, Michael N.. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - BackgroundIndividuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) often describe their lives as stressful and unpredictable. However, it is unclear whether the adversity faced by those with BPD is a product of stress reactivity or stress generation. Here, we examined the dynamic, prospective associations between BPD and stressful life events over 3 years. Given the heterogeneity present in BPD, we sought to understand which empirically derived dimensions of this heterogeneous disorder explain stress reactivity v. stress generation.MethodsParticipants included 355 individuals diagnosed with BPD and followed longitudinally at three annual assessments. Auto-regressive cross-lagged panel models were used to examine prospective ...
Somewhere between 11% and 22% of adolescents seeking mental health care in outpatient clinics-and between 33% and 49% of those in inpatient units-meet the diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder (BPD). Despite its high prevalence, however, and the high social and economic costs that it entails, BPD remains underdiagnosed, and sufficient training regarding its fundamentals and clinical management is largely unavailable for mental health professionals treating adolescents.. It is precisely these essential guidelines that clinicians will find in the Handbook of Good Psychiatric Management for Adolescents With Borderline Personality Disorder. Adapted from Dr. John Gundersons good psychiatric management (GPM), a resource-efficient generalist treatment for adults with BPD, this manual uses GPM for adolescents (GPM-A) to demystify BPD in young people, describing common problems that arise during each phase or aspect of treatment, from patient rejection of diagnosis and conflicts among ...
Over the past two decades considerable progress has been made in developing specialist psychosocial treatments for borderline personality disorder (BPD), yet the majority of people with BPD receive treatment within generalist mental health services, rather than specialist treatment centres. This is a book for general mental health professionals who treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It offers practical guidance on how to help people with BPD with advice based on research evidence.
What is Borderline Personality Disorder? Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a disorder of emotion regulation affecting up to 5% [1] of the population. Up until a few decades ago, those diagnosed with the disorder were thought to be untreatable. Despite this shift, individuals living with BPD continue to face surplus stigma. However, evidence-based treatments, have helped
Dissociation in schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder Ondrej Pec,1,2 Petr Bob,1,3 Jiri Raboch1 1Center for Neuropsychiatric Research of Traumatic Stress, Department of Psychiatry, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, 2Psychotherapeutic and Psychosomatic Clinic ESET, Prague, 3Central European Institute of Technology, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic Background: Dissociation likely plays a key role in schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder (BPD), although empirical studies that compare specific manifestations of these symptoms in schizophrenia and BPD are rare. In this context, the purpose of this study was to compare the occurrence of dissociative and other psychopathological symptoms in these disorders, and to assess the possible influence of antipsychotic medication on the dissociative symptoms. Methods: We assessed 31 patients with schizophrenia and 36 patients with BPD. Dissociative symptoms were measured by the Dissociative
Living with borderline personality disorder, or being in a relationship with someone who has BPD, can be stressful. It can be very difficult to acknowledge and accept the reality of BPD, but treatment may help.. If you are concerned that you, or that someone you care about, may have borderline personality disorder, contact a licensed mental health professional. Many supportive healthcare professionals are available to help you get started on the path to healing. Since BPD can be a complex condition, and treatment usually requires long-term talk therapy, it will be important to find a mental health professional who has expertise in treating this condition.. It is possible to learn how to manage feelings better and find ways to have healthier and more rewarding relationships. With the help of talk therapy, one can learn how to reduce impulsive and self-destructive behaviors and understand more about the condition. With a commitment to long-term treatment, positive and healthy change is within ...
Individuals affected by borderline personality disorder have difficulty regulating their emotions, leading to severe mood swings, instability, impulsivity and poor self-image. People with BPD experience feelings intensely and often find it difficult to stabilize their emotions after intense episodes. A combination of genetics and environmental factors contribute to the development of BPD. More women than men are impacted by borderline personality disorder, with symptoms such as:. ...
Method: Multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial. Between July 2013 to November 2016, we recruited 276 people aged 18 or over, who met diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder. We excluded those with co-existing bipolar affective disorder or psychosis, those already taking a mood stabiliser, and women at risk of pregnancy. We randomly allocated participants on a 1:1 ratio to up to 400mg of lamotrigine per day or an inert placebo using a remote web-based randomization service. The primary outcome was total score on the Zanarini Rating scale for Borderline Personality Disorder (ZAN-BPD) at 52 weeks.

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that affects the way to relate to other people and the way you relate to yourself. If youre living with borderline personality disorder, you might feel like theres something fundamentally wrong with who you are-you might feel flawed or worthless, or you might not even have a good sense of who you are as a person. Your moods might be extreme and change all the time, and you might have a hard time controlling impulses or urges. You may have a hard time trusting others and you may be very scared of being abandoned or alone.3. BPD is made up of five groups of symptoms: unstable behaviour, unstable emotions, unstable relationships, unstable sense of identity and awareness problems.4,5. Unstable behaviour means that you often act on impulses or urges, even when they hurt you or other people. Some examples of impulse control problems are:. ...

The bigger cause of Borderline Personality Disorder is living through an extremely traumatic childhood. Sadly, that accounts for about 75% of all cases. When a child is forced to endure so much abuse, their brain does what it can to cope. And since the brain is doing all this coping during the time that its also developing and growing, the pathways end up getting all screwy. And that affects the way we think, feel and react for the rest of our lives ...
People with borderline personality disorder may experience mood swings and display uncertainty about how they see themselves and their role in the world. As a result, their interests and values can change quickly.. People with borderline personality disorder also tend to view things in extremes, such as all good or all bad. Their opinions of other people can also change quickly. An individual who is seen as a friend one day may be considered an enemy or traitor the next. These shifting feelings can lead to intense and unstable relationships.. Other signs or symptoms may include:. ...

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and substance use disorders (SUDs) often co-occur, partly because they share risk factors. In this international multicenter study, risk factors for BPD were examined for SUD patients. In total, 1,205 patients were comprehensively examined by standardized interviews and questionnaires on psychiatric diagnosis and risk factors, and it was found that 1,033 (85.7%) had SUDs without BPD (SUD) and 172 (14.3%) had SUD with BPD (SUD + BPD). SUD + BPD patients were significantly younger, more often females and more often diagnosed with comorbid adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. SUD + BPD patients did not differ from SUD patients on most risk factors typical for SUD such as maternal use of drugs during pregnancy or parents having any SUD. However, SUD + BPD patients did have a higher risk of having experienced emotional and physical abuse, neglect, or family violence in childhood compared to SUD patients, suggesting that child abuse and family violence ...
Individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) are the quintessential multi-problem patients, often presenting to treatment with numerous dysfunctional behaviors and comorbid diagnoses. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive, cognitive-behavioral treatment for BPD that has been shown effective in reducing the primary problems it is designed to treat; namely, the frequency and severity of self-injurious and suicidal behavior, maintenance in treatment, and severe problems in living. However, the DBT treatment manual does not currently include a protocol specifying when or how to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a comorbid diagnosis that is prevalent in BPD patients and may maintain or exacerbate BPD criterion behaviors. Similarly, many of the existing treatment outcome studies for PTSD have excluded suicidal, substance abusing, and multiply diagnosed patients, thereby making it difficult to determine the generalizability of these approaches to individuals with ...
Individuals with borderline personality disorder seek psychiatric help and hospitalization at a much higher rate than people with other personality disorders, proba- o bly due to their fear of abandonment and their need to d e seek idealized interpersonal relationships. These patients li represent the highest percentage of diagnosed personali- e ty disorders (up to 60%). e rs. Providing effective therapy for the borderline per- on sonality patient is a necessary, but difficult, challenge. ali The therapist-patient relationship is subject to the same inappropriate and unrealistic demands that borderline is personalities place on all their significant interpersonal rd relationships. They are chronic treatment seekers who r become easily frustrated with their therapist if they feel they are not receiving adequate attention or empathy, and symptomatic anger, impulsivity, and self-destructive behavior can impede the therapist-patient relationship. However, their fear of abandonment, and of ending ...

September 3, 2009 /Press Release/ -- Mount Sinai researchers have found that real-time brain imaging suggests that patients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) are physically unable to activate neurological networks that can help regulate emotion. The findings, by Harold W. Koenigsberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, were presented at the 11th International Congress of the International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (ISSPD), held August 21 - 23 at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. The research will also be published in the journal Biological Psychiatry.. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Dr. Koenigsberg observed how the brains of people with BPD reacted to social and emotional stimuli. He found that when people with BPD attempted to control and reduce their reactions to disturbing emotional scenes, the anterior cingulated cortex and intraparetical sulci areas of the brain that are active in healthy people under ...
Findings from a team of Dutch and American researchers indicate that people with BPD have symptoms that partially overlap with somatoform disorders, although there are key differences. The study, published in the March 2015 issue of Borderline Personality Disorder and Emotional Dysregulation, compared emotional and relationship stability problems in people with BPD versus people with somatoform disorders.5. Of 472 adult participants, an estimated 25% were diagnosed with BPD and about 33% were diagnosed with a somatoform disorder. An additional 25% had a combined diagnosis of BPD and a somatoform disorder, while the remaining individuals had mental health problems unrelated to BPD or somatoform disorders. The goal of the study was to assess whether emotional control and relationship stability problems linked to both or either disorder were associated with any degree of poor bonding attachment during childhood and the formation of anxiety-based or avoidance-based relationships in ...

Particularly serotonin transporter gene polymorphism 5-HTTLPR of the 5-HTT gene has been associated as a risk factor for the development of affective disorders.[23] The presence of one or two short copies of 5-HTTLPR is correlated with reduced expression and function of the serotonin transporter protein, and increased behaviour related to fear and anxiety.[23] When two short copies of this gene polymorphism is present, an increased vulnerability to depressive symptoms under stress is exhibited along with increased cortisol production.[23] It is possible that this variant of the 5-HTT serotonin transporter gene may be a risk factor for the development of BPD as individuals with BPD exhibits symptoms that are characteristic for serotonin dysfunction.[23] In one study, BPD patients were genotyped in the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism and were asked to report on their borderline-specific symptoms.[23] The results show: carriers of two short alleles of the 5-HTTLPR reported more symptoms of borderline, ...

There are diagnostic rule-outs for the clinician to consider. In the DSM -5, disorders such as Bipolar I or III with rapid cycling, Borderline Personality Disorder, and substance abuse disorders are possible differential diagnoses. In Bipolar I and II, the alternating hypomanic, manic, and depressive episodes will typically cycle over a period of months or weeks, although more rapid cycling is possible, and the delineation and severity of symptoms may not be as apparent. In Borderline Personality Disorder, the individual may experience a labile mood, which is of different quality than cyclothymic disorder, in that mood will be unstable, and can change from anger, to sadness, to anxiety all within a span of minutes. In substance use disorders, CNS (Central Nervous System) stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine will elevate mood, resulting in what appear to be manic or hypomanic symptoms, followed by a corresponding parasympathetic rebound effect resulting in pseudo-depressive symptoms. ...
The problem with the way the diagnosis of BPD is being applied, is that, the individuals experience of trauma is often minimized or ignored.
Objectives: The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders guidelines provide only a partial solution to the nosology and treatment of bipolar disorder in that disorders with common symptoms and biological correlates may be categorized separately because of superficial differences related to behavior, life history, and temperament. The relationship is explored between extremely rapid switching forms of bipolar disorder, in which manic and depressive symptoms are either mixed or switch rapidly, and forms of borderline personality disorder in which affective lability is a prominent symptom. Methods: A MedLine search was conducted of articles that focused on rapid cycling in bipolar disorder, emphasizing recent publications (2001-2004). Results: Studies examined here suggest a number of points of phenomenological and biological overlap between the affective lability criterion of borderline personality disorder and the extremely rapid cycling bipolar disorders. We propose a model for the ...
