  • The tail wagging the dog: the diagnostic accuracy of first rank symptoms
    • Authors: Leigh Townsend; Riccardo De Giorgi
      Pages: 337 - 341
      Abstract: Outcomes for people with schizophrenia are improved by expedient diagnosis and specific treatment. ICD-11 and DSM-5 have reduced the importance of Schneider's first rank symptoms (FRS) in the diagnosis of schizophrenia; however, FRS may still offer a useful triage tool for the early identification of schizophrenia and initiation of antipsychotic therapy in high-demand and resource-poor settings. This commentary considers a Cochrane review that assesses the diagnostic accuracy of one or multiple FRS in diagnosing schizophrenia in adults and adolescents.DECLARATION OF INTERESTNone.

  • Functional cognitive disorders: identification and management
    • Authors: Norman A. Poole; Sarah R. Cope, Cate Bailey, Jeremy D. Isaacs
      Pages: 342 - 350
      Abstract: We review the various functional cognitive disorders (FCDs) – complaints about memory function or another cognitive process in the absence of relevant neuropathology. These are increasingly coming to the attention of psychiatrists and neurologists and FCD encompasses some newly recognised conditions in addition to classic types such as pseudodementia and psychogenic amnesia. The clinical features, neuropsychological findings and treatment are presented and discussed.LEARNING OBJECTIVESAfter reading this article you will be able to:
      •describe clinical features of FCD and how it differs from neurodegenerative causes of cognitive impairment
      •be able to subclassify cases of FCD using the proposed nosology
      •understand how to discuss the diagnosis with the patient and explain how the symptoms arise.DECLARATION OF INTERESTNone.

  • Can evolutionary thinking shed light on gender diversity'
    • Authors: Bernadette Wren; John Launer, Michael J. Reiss, Annie Swanepoel, Graham Music
      Pages: 351 - 362
      Abstract: Issues of sexual reproduction lie at the core of evolutionary thinking, which often places an emphasis on how individuals attempt to maximise the number of successful offspring that they can produce. At first sight, it may therefore appear that individuals who opt for gender-affirming medical interventions are acting in ways that are evolutionarily disadvantageous. However, there are persuasive hypotheses that might make sense of such choices in evolutionary terms and we explore these here. It is premature to claim knowledge of the extent to which evolutionary arguments can usefully be applied to issues of gender identity, although worth reflecting on the extent to which nature tends towards diversity in matters of sex and gender. The importance of acknowledging and respecting different views in this domain, as well as recognising both the uncertainty and likely multiplicity of causal pathways, has implications for clinicians. We make some suggestions about how clinicians might best respond when faced with requests from patients in this area.LEARNING OBJECTIVESAfter reading this article you will be able to:
      •understand evolutionary arguments about diversity in human gender identity
      •identify strengths and weaknesses in evolutionary arguments applied to transgender issues
      •appreciate the range and diversity of gender experience and gender expression among people who present to specialist gender services, as well as the likely complexities of their reasons for requesting medical intervention.DECLARATION OF INTERESTThe authors are members of the evo-psychotherapy study group at the Tavistock Clinic, London. The aim of the group is to promote evolutionary thinking in psychotherapy and psychiatry.

  • Tobacco smoking and schizophrenia: re-examining the evidence
    • Authors: Amila Isuru; Mahesh Rajasuriya
      Pages: 363 - 372
      Abstract: Tobacco smoking among people with mental illnesses can be explained by biological, psychological and social factors. The prevalence of smoking in people diagnosed with schizophrenia is higher than in people with other mental disorders and in the general population. This article explores three current hypotheses that explain this higher prevalence of smoking in schizophrenia. The first, the self-medication hypothesis, is increasingly countered by a growing body of evidence indicating that smokers experience more severe symptoms of schizophrenia. Numerous researchers have already identified smoking as a possible risk factor for the development of schizophrenia, which is the second hypothesis. The third hypothesis (shared genetic vulnerability) identifies certain genes that confer vulnerability for both schizophrenia and nicotine dependence. Understanding the reasons behind the higher prevalence of smoking among people with schizophrenia is vital in planning effective primary, secondary and tertiary smoking prevention for these individuals.LEARNING OBJECTIVESAt the end of this article, readers will be able to:
      •understand the self-medication hypothesis in relation to tobacco smoking by people with schizophrenia
      •understand the role of tobacco smoking as a possible risk factor for causation of schizophrenia
      •understand the role of shared genetic vulnerability in the causation of both schizophrenia and nicotine dependence.DECLARATION OF INTERESTM.R. is a member of the Expert Committee on Tobacco, Alcohol and Illicit Drugs of the Sri Lanka Medical Association, the founding director of the Centre for Combating Tobacco at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo, and the Chairman of the Alcohol and Drug Information Centre (ADIC) Sri Lanka.

  • Hebephrenia is dead, long live hebephrenia, or why Hecker and Chaslin were
           on to something
    • Authors: Alvaro Barrera; Owen Curwell-Parry, Marie-Claire Raphael
      Pages: 373 - 376
      Abstract: Since its first description in 1863, ‘hebephrenia’ has highlighted a group of patients characterised by an early onset of illness, formal thought disorder, bizarre behaviour and incongruent emotional expression. A proportion of patients with the most severe form of mental illness have a clinical presentation that is best captured by this diagnosis. Here, we outline the construct of hebephrenia and two of its core overlapping constituent parts: bizarre behaviour and the disorganisation dimension. We argue that, despite the removal of hebephrenia (disorganised schizophrenia) from DSM-5, clinicians should consider it as a differential diagnosis, particularly in suspected personality disorder.DECLARATION OF INTERESTNone.

  • Clozapine: why wait to start a laxative'
    • Authors: Azizah Attard; Andrew Iles, Stephen Attard, Nathan Atkinson, Anita Patel
      Pages: 377 - 386
      Abstract: Clozapine, the antipsychotic of choice for treatment-resistant schizophrenia, has a number of side-effects, some of which are potentially life-threatening. Historically viewed as a relatively minor side-effect, there is increasing awareness of the potentially severe sequalae of constipation secondary to clozapine-induced gastrointestinal hypomotility (CIGH). These include ileus, intestinal obstruction, bowel ischaemia, gastrointestinal necrosis, toxic megacolon and death. CIGH is significantly more common than clozapine-induced blood dyscrasias and has a higher mortality rate. Although strict criteria must be followed to assertively monitor, detect and treat blood dyscrasias in patients taking clozapine, no such framework exists for CIGH. We recommend that prescribing guidelines, regulatory agencies and information from manufacturers should more clearly highlight the risks identified in the literature. Furthermore, we recommend that, in people taking clozapine, constipation should be prevented by prophylactic treatment with laxatives rather than treated only when clinically identified.LEARNING OBJECTIVES:After reading this article you will be able to:
      •understand the mechanism of gastrointestinal hypomotility in those taking clozapine
      •improve the monitoring of clozapine-induced constipation
      •understand prophylactic laxative treatment and the use of less commonly prescribed laxatives in patients who experience clozapine-induced constipation.DECLARATION OF INTEREST:None.

  • Cultural adaptation of cognitive–behavioural therapy
    • Authors: Farooq Naeem; Peter Phiri, Shanaya Rathod, Muhammad Ayub
      Pages: 387 - 395
      Abstract: The study of cultural factors in the application of psychotherapy across cultures – ethnopsychotherapy – is an emerging field. It has been argued that Western cultural values underpin cognitive–behavioural therapy (CBT) as they do other modern psychosocial interventions developed in the West. Therefore, attempts have been made to culturally adapt CBT for ethnic minority patients in the West and local populations outside the West. Some frameworks have been proposed based on therapists’ individual experiences, but this article describes a framework that evolved from a series of qualitative studies to culturally adapt CBT and that was field tested in randomised controlled trials. We describe the process of adaptation, details of methods used and the areas that need to be focused on to adapt CBT to a given culture. Further research is required to move the field forward, but cultural adaptation alone cannot improve outcomes. Access to evidence-based psychosocial interventions, including CBT, needs to be improved for culturally adapted interventions to achieve their full potential.LEARNING OBJECTIVESAfter reading this article you will be able to:
      •recognise the link between cultural factors and the need to adapt psychosocial interventions
      •identify the necessary steps to culturally adapt CBT
      •understand the modifications required to deliver therapy to individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds.DECLARATION OF INTERESTNone.

    • Authors: Riccardo De Giorgi
      Pages: 396 - 398
      Abstract: Currently, network meta-analyses (NMAs) are the only technique that allow us to compare and rank numerous treatments across trials. Evidence produced by NMAs relies on pooled data from both direct and indirect comparisons within studies. Consequently, NMAs are invaluable tools for informing clinical guidelines.DECLARATION OF INTERESTNone.
