    , 2013
    Co-Authors: Bojir Perme, R Chandrasekharan, Kommu John Vijaysagar
    Abstract:

    Alcoholic Hallucinosis is a pathological mental state characterized by an acute onset of predominant auditory hallucinations that occur either during or after a period of heavy alcohol consumption. In this study, 52 patients with a diagnosis of Psychotic disorder predominantly hallucinatory associated with alcohol use (F 10.52) were evaluated after a period of three years. Past history of withdrawal hallucinations was associated with Alcoholic Hallucinosis The study has found a wide spectrum of outcome confirming the earlier observations that Alcoholic Hallucinosis is a heterogeneous disorder. Key wards: alcohol, Hallucinosis, follow-up, abstinenc

  • P-25 – Alcoholic Hallucinosis: report of two cases
    European Psychiatry, 2012
    Co-Authors: A. Farcas
    Abstract:

    Starting with 2 clinical cases of Alcoholic Hallucinosis, the author reminds the existence of this clinical entity, first described by Wernicke, which is found in the DSM IV at the F10.52 category (“Psychotic disorder induced by alcohol, with hallucinations, starting during withdrawal”). The 2 patients, aged 43 and 23, were hospitalised in the following behavioral disturbances with self- and heteroaggressiveness. In both cases, a similar episode was found in the anamnesis.The clinical picture includes sudden onset of acoustic hallucinations after 2 days of alcohol withdrawal, within a context of chronic alcoholism. Persecutions, both mystical and of jealousy, an experience of massive anxiety, as well as a delusional belief are at the origin of acting out. Absence of a confusional syndrome, dissociative or of thymic symptomatology, normal cerebral imaging, liver disorders (cytolysis and hepatic steatosis).Although during the acute episode these phenomena seem real for the patients, during the evolution the patients display the tendency to stand aloof from them, considering them pathological and attempting to master them. The interest of this study is the perspective with the literature data of these clinical situations, infrequent in practice, but with potentially serious behavioral consequences in the acute. Producing a diagnosis allows a rather favourable outcome in the case of a well conducted treatment that takes into consideration immediate (acting out) and long term (recurrence) risks.

  • Psychiatric Disorders Among American Indian vs. Other Patients With Psychoactive Substance Use Disorders
    The American Journal on Addictions, 1993
    Co-Authors: Joseph Westermeyer
    Abstract:

    In this study 100 American Indian (AI)patients and200 non-AI patients with a psychoactive substance use disorder (PSUD) were studied with special reference to associated psychiatric disorders. Current Axis I diagnoses, previous psychiatric treatment, and family history of psychiatric disorder were compared among these two groups. AI patients from a university hospital clinical population had excess numbers of organic mental disorder (OMD), including both acute OMD (i.e., delirium tremens and Alcoholic Hallucinosis) and chronic OMD (i.e., alcohol amnestic disorder, alcohol dementia, and trauma-induced OMD). Overall, “dual diagnosis” was more frequent among the AI patients, due primarily to the excess incidence of OMD. The rate of other psychiatric diagnoses was comparable between the two groups. Within the non-OMDpsychiatric diagnoses, a few differences did occur. AI patients manifested increased anxiety disorders, whereas non-AI patients had increased eating disorders. Previous psychiatric treatment and f…

  • Substance use and other psychiatric disorders among 100 American Indian patients
    Culture Medicine and Psychiatry, 1992
    Co-Authors: Joseph Westermeyer, John Neider, Michelle Westermeyer
    Abstract:

    One hundred American Indian patients with a Psychoactive Substance Use Disorder (PSUD) were studied with special reference to associated psychiatric disorders. This clinical sample was divided into three groups: PSUD only, PSUD plus an Organic Mental Disorder (OMD), and PSUD plus any other psychiatric disorder. OMD diagnoses included primarily Delirium Tremens and Alcoholic Hallucinosis; cases of Alcohol Amnestic Disorder, Alcohol Dementia, and trauma-induced OMD were also encountered. Other psychiatric disorders included primarily Major Depression and Anxiety Disorder, with smaller numbers of Schizophrenia, Conduct, Sexual, and other Disorders. Demographic and clinical characteristics were compared among these three groups. Those with PSUD + OMD tended to be older, male, and have more DSM-III Axis 3 disorders (American Psychiatric Association 1980) as compared to other patients; those with PSUD + other diagnoses tended to be single and younger. Education and occupational status were not related to the three diagnostic groups. The data were also subjected to MANOVA analysis. Even when corrected for sex, types of substance being abused, Axis 3 health status, and other factors, the three diagnostic groups still bore a significant relationship to age. Those with PSUD + Other psychiatric diagnoses besides OMD tended to be youngest. Those with PSUD-only were intermediate by age, while those with PSUD + OMD tended to be the oldest.
