Heroin Addiction Scholarly Journal

 Much of the literature has described mental disorder constructs for heroin addicts. construction on previous work we audit the purpose of effective temperament measures in these patients. consecutive stabilized methadone treated heroin addicts, 34 with and 25 without psychiatric comorbidity, were compared, regarding effective temperaments, consistent with the Akiskal and Mallya formulation, with 58 healthy volunteers sharing similar social and regional demographics. No differences were observed between heroin addicts and controls on either depressive or hyperthymic scales. Significant discrepancies were noted in cyclothymic and irritability scales, on which heroin addicts scored higher, no matter the presence or absence of a dual diagnosis. In a multi various  discriminate analysis, mainly cyclothymic, and (to a lesser extent) irritable attribute show a difference between heroin addicts and controls, but not between heroin addicts with and without dual diagnoses. Our data suggest a new hypothesis. Cyclothymic, and to a minor amount annoyed attribute (the “dark side”), could represent the temperamental profile of heroin addicts, largely regardless of comorbidity, and have a tendency to cohere with previous conceptualizations hypothesizing “sensation-seeking” (and “novelty-seeking”) because the main personality characteristics of addiction. septic arthritis thanks to Pseudomonas occurred in users of heroin. Nine cases were monarticular, two each occurring within the sternoclavicular and therefore the sacro-iliac joints. Review of the literature suggests that the incidence of Pseudomonas septic arthritis is increasing.
