Challenging Cases Intro

February 15, 2012

We invite you to weigh in on the case vignettes presented in this space. The cases are culled from the real-life experiences of the authors, and many have previously been published in Psychiatric Times within the context of a clinical article. The identity of the patients in each of these cases has been altered. We feature them here because each case involves at least one diagnostic or therapeutic decision dilemma.

Please share your thoughts on these decision points with your colleagues by posting your comments in the box below each article. The author(s) of the cases will review all comments and will present a wrap-up of key teaching points based on reader input.

 

If you have a challenging case, we invite you to send us the details. Please describe the clinical presentation, assessment, treatment, and outcome, followed by a compelling question to challenge readers. Thank you.
