"In this piece Dr. Hambling draws together the many factors acting in a sufferer's childhood to produce the 'typical' DID profile, illustrating these with graphic examples from his own work with children and adults. Among them the analysis singles out 'the mother who hates' as a major factor sparking the formation of self-protective fantasy identities by the child. These, of course, are the so-called 'multiple personalities' that give the condition the name by which it is more popularly known - multiple personality disorder, or MPD."

AB - Hysteroid dysphoria has been described in outpatient populations and is thought to be a subtype of atypical depression involving rejection sensitivity and therapeutic response to monoamine oxidase inhibitors. The presence of hysteroid dysphoria was assessed, using a semistructured interview, in 18 depressed inpatients. The 6 patients who met the criteria for hysteroid dysphoria did not differ from depressed patients in severity, premorbid adjustment, number of atypical features, or presence of melancholia. Implications for treatment are discussed.

A 21-item questionnaire eliciting features of hysteroid dysphoria was administered to 51 depressed outpatients. Of the 47 patients who completed a 6-week double-blind study comparing the efficacy of amitriptyline and phenelzine, 14 had questionnaire scores greater than or equal to 13 (high score) and 33 had scores less than 13 (low score). Nine of nine high-score patients responded to phenelzine; only three of five high-score patients responded to amitriptyline. Low-score patients responded equally well to either drug (79% improved). These findings suggest that some depressed patients have features of hysteroid dysphoria and that these patients respond preferentially to phenelzine.
