BMC Psychiatry, 06/22/2012
Lee BS et al. – Delirious mania is a potentially life–threatening but under–recognized neuropsychiatric syndrome. Delirious mania that is ineffectively treated may induce a new–onset manic episode or worsen an ongoing manic episode, and the patient will need prolonged hospitalization. Delirious mania also has a close relationship with catatonia. Early recognition and aggressive treatment, especially with electroconvulsive therapy, can significantly reduce morbidity and mortality.
