Bipolar disorder is frequent and has a lifetime prevalence of 1.5% in general practice populations. It is not always easy to diagnose, thus resulting in a significant delay in treatment. Consequently, episodes of decompensation such as a manic episode can be seen in elderly patients who have never been deemed bipolar. We report a case of manic episode with psychotic features in an 88-year-old woman who was eventually diagnosed with bipolar I disorder. This case study reminds us that bipolar disorder is hard to diagnose and enables us to review its specific management in the elderly. Some of the specific features of bipolar disorder in the elderly make its clinical presentation more complex. There are no specific guidelines for the treatment of these patients, but some commonly used treatments have all shown some efficacy and ECT may be useful in the treatment of elderly patients with bipolar disorder. © La Revue de Gériatrie.

The mental health of precarious migrants is a very frequent reason for consultation, and little is known by health professionals. A retrospective study was conducted from 2010 to 2013 in 110 patients by the Mobile Psychiatry and Insecurity Team at a specialized medical centre equipped to deal with migrants in Rennes. The average age was 29 years, 55% were homeless, 70% seeking asylum, and 76% had experienced violence. Diagnoses were: posttraumatic stress (27%), psychosocial distress (21%), anxiety-depressive syndrome (18%). 67% were lost to follow-up with a median duration of 3.5 months, mainly unaccompanied minors and people in psycho-social distress. Mental disorders that were not obvious or not recognized relieves the care management of specific individuals who are professionally trained to improve patient adherence. © 2015, John Libbey Eurotext.

Medecine Palliative | Year: 2012
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Médicine Palliative journal, psychiatrists and psychologists from the editorial board of the review argue here their reflexion about the following question: what could be the place for "psys" working in palliative care, in the next 10 years. Two actual dangers may be at risk for the forthcoming years: one danger is being opposite to medical discourse, which may lead to an impasse; another danger is being assimilated to a pure scientifical logic, which may do miss clinical encounter. © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS.

Objective Pregnancy before 15 years old remains a troublesome issue for medical teams which are not used to working with adolescents. The aim of this work is to study the outcome of the pregnancies among very young adolescents, the psycho-social context, the medical management, the professionals involved in it and the follow-up after pregnancy. Materials and methods Retrospective analysis from four cases, in the university hospital of Rennes, during the year 2011. Results All the pregnancies were terminated, half of them on a psychological indication. Three adolescents showed evidence of major psychological distress and two of them had a history of sexual abuse. The medical care was heterogeneous, from the first meet until the follow-up after pregnancy, including the medical abortion. A multidisciplinary teamwork was found in three of the four cases. Conclusion Pregnancy before the age of 15 years old is a rare event and often ends with a medical abortion. The medical management of those vulnerable adolescents is complex and requires a multidisciplinary team approach all along the follow-up. A national evaluation of clinical practice in this area seems to be needed. © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.

French cultural diversity is evident within French hospitals, where nurses are confronted with communication problems resultingfrom the language barrier. While communication is indeed essential, there is another important aspect of caring for a patient for behind the language barrier lies a cultural barrier which must be taken into account in order to provide high-quality care © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS.
