Ganser Syndrome
  • Ganser's syndrome. Investigations Toxicology screen because substance abuse is common (as with many personality disorders).[patient.info]
Cognitive Disorder
  • Nonparametric conditional inference trees were used to test for cognitive disorder-specificity. Participants with AN exhibited higher trait-TSF-scores than those with BPD, when participants with BPD and a co-occurring AN were removed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • See Workup for more detail. Management Historically, treatment of patients with BPD has been difficult.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • Abstract Objective: The authors examined three yearlong outpatient treatments for borderline personality disorder: dialectical behavior therapy, transference-focused psychotherapy, and a dynamic supportive treatment.[ajp.psychiatryonline.org]
  • The duration of treatment We report treatment duration as a variable of outcome, defined as the number of months in treatment and treatment drop-out as less than 3 months in treatment. 2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The so called “treatment gap” is a function of the disinclination of the afflicted to submit for treatment, an under diagnosing of the disorder by healthcare providers, and the limited availability and access to state-of-the-art treatments.[bpdfamily.com]
