Early onset manic depression psychosis in a mother and her daughter

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  13 June 2014

Abstract

Bipolar affective disorder has a usual age of onset in early adulthood. Adolescent onset occurs in some, prepubertal onset in a few. Early onset affective psychosis in two generations is rarer still and provides powerful evidence for a major genetic effect, especially where adoption removes confounding environmental stresses. We present just such a case in a mother and her daughter.
