Gene context of Trichotillomania

  • RESULTS: Trichotillomania, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and idiopathic hyperCKemia, in 1 patient each, preceded the development of the full clinical spectrum of CHAC by 2 to 20 years [17].
  • Trichotillomania and carpal tunnel syndrome [18].
  • Such a case of trichotillomania occurring with major depressive disorder is reported in this paper [19].
  • (J Am Acad Dermatol 2002;46:807-21.) Learning objective: At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants should be familiar with clinical and histologic aspects of trichotillomania and should be able to cope with the risks of medical and psychiatric complications in these patients [20].
  • Mean+/-S.D. CSF IL-6 levels did not differ between OCD patients (n=26) (2.4+/-1.1 pg/ml) and controls (n=26) (2.4+/-1.9 pg/ml) or between trichotillomania patients (n=9) (2.3+/-0.8 pg/ml) and their matched controls (n=14) (1.9+/-0.5 pg/ml) [21].
