Abstract

This article examined some of the reasons for confusion and controversy surrounding the frequency of diagnosis of bipolar disorder, especially in prepubertal children. Four case vignettes are used to articulate questions surrounding manifestations of euphoria and grandiosity, informant variance, diagnostic implications of medication-induced behavioral toxicity, and treatment implications of family history. Although extant literature cited addresses some of the issues, specific research is needed for definitive answers.
