Abstract

This article describes an open study of lithium carbonate in conduct-disordered children. The objective of the study was to investigate theeffectiveness of lithium in reducing aggression and the usefulness ofthe Overt Aggression Scale (GAS), as a measure of treatment effect. The subjects, 3 children, ages 9.2 to 16.9 years (mean +/- standard deviation [SD] = 12.48 +/- 2.97), were treated for 4 weeks with lithium. Optimal dosages ranged from 1200 to 1800 mg/day (mean = 1350 +/- 227) with corresponding serum lithium levels ranging from 0.86 to 1.39 mEq/L (mean = 1.05 +/- 0.17). OAS results indicated that aggression decreased significantly over time. The findings from the OAS agreed with findings from a more general measure, the Global Clinical Consensus Rating, leading to the conclusion that the OAS is a promising outcome measure for treatment studies of aggression in children. Further placebo-controlled studies of lithium carbonate in reducing aggressive behavior in conduct-disordered children, employing a specific measure such as the GAS, are warranted.
