Abstract

Although the diagnosis of pediatric-onset bipolar disorder is controversial, an increasing literature of systematic research has challenged the traditional view that this disorder is a rare condition. This article summarizesresearch regarding the atypical presentation of pediatric bipolar disorderand its overlap with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and other comorbid conditions, as well as family-genetic and treatment data. When structured interview data were examined, cases of pediatric mania constituted 16% of referrals to our outpatient clinic. Presentation is atypical by adult standards and includes irritability, chronicity, and mixed state. Family-genetic and treatment data help to establish diagnostic validity. Pediatric bipolar disorder is not a rare condition, Treatment requires a combined pharmacotherapy approach to address issues of comorbidity. Atypical antipsychotic medications have provided promising treatment results, but additional controlled clinical trials are needed.
