Abstract

In a sample of 213 mood disorder subjects on long-term lithium treatment, we analyzed the recurrence indices of relapses during the prophylactic treatment period. The differences found in the recurrence rates were due to the current age and age of onset, duration of illness and polarity of the probands. The patients with personality disorders showed the worst relapse indices and could represent a group of mood disorder subjects with a bad outcome of lithium treatment.
