About the Book

Well known for providing a thorough yet concise view of the natural history of psychiatric disorders, this popular text has been completely updated chapter by chapter in this Fifth Edition. Terminology has been revised in line with DSM IV and many recent genetic and neurobiological findings have been included. Some of the areas where there is new material are: genetics and neuroimaging of schizophrenia, combined use of benzodiazepines and neuroleptics in treating schizophrenia, development of antisocial personality, neuropsychological changes in AIDS patients, genetics of Alzheimer's disease, prognosis for delirium in the elderly, and epidemiologyu of anorexia nervosa. As in previous editions, each chapter systematically covers the definition, historical background, epidemiology, clinical picture, natural history, complications, family studies, differential diagnosis, and clinical management of each disorder. The use of follow-up studies to classify psychiatric disorders is
emphasized. No other text provides such a lucid, well-documented and critically sound overview of the major syndromes in psychiatry. Medical students and psychiatric residents will continue to find Psychiatric Diagnosis a unique guide to the field.
