    Notes: Abstract This paper reviews evidence from clinical, epidemiologic, and family studies regarding the association between social phobia and other syndromes. Social phobia is strongly associated with other anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and affective disorders in both clinical and community samples. An average of 80% of social phobics identified in community samples meet diagnostic criteria for another lifetime condition. Social phobia is most strongly associated with other subtypes of anxiety disorders, with an average of 50% of social phobics in the community reporting a concomitant anxiety disorder including another phobic disorder, generalized anciety, or panic disorder. Approximately 20% of subjects in the community meet lifetime criteria for a major depressive disorder. The onset of social phobia generally precedes that of all other disorders, with the exception of simple phobia. Both clinical severity and treated prevalence are consistently greater among social phobics with comorbid disorders The results of family and twin studies reveal that shared etiologic factors explain a substantial proportion of the comorbidity between social phobia and depression, whereas the association between social phobia and alcoholism derives from a nonfamilial causal relationship between the two conditions. Clinical and phenomenologic implications of these findings are discussed.

    Notes: Abstract Data on cognitive impairment in the oldest old is reported comparing two different samples, one in Munich, Germany, and the other in the United States (Epidemiologic Catchment Area [ECA] study). In both studies the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) was used for assessing cognitive impairment. The Munich sample consisted of 402 and the ECA sample of 827 very old people aged 85 years and above. The results indicate that approximately 40% of each sample scored below 24 points in the MMSE indicating at least mild cognitive impairment. Severe cognitive impairment was found in 13.4% of the Munich and in 14.6% of the American sample. The prevalence of major depression was 1.4% in Munich and 2.0% in the ECA study, and dysthymia was found in 5.1% in the Munich and in 2.0% in the ECA sample aged 85 years and above. Persons living in institutions in both studies more frequently showed signs of cognitive impairment than those living in private households. The ECA sample, but not the Munich sample, showed a significantly higher prevalence of cognitive impairment for females and for the oldest age cohort above 90 years of age. Major depression was more frequent in Munich in persons living in institutions and in the ECA study among the oldest age cohort above 90 years of age. Dysthymia in both studies did not show any association with sociodemographic factors. Most of the excess comorbidity (cognitive impairment and depression) was observed among subjects with mild (and not with severe) cognitive impairment. Very similar prevalence rates were generally found not only for MMSE-based cognitive impairment, but contrary to our expectations, also for major depressive disorder. Out data partially confirm a further increase in the prevalence of cognitive impairment in very old age.

    Notes: This paper reports the results of a high–risk study of children under age 18 of parents who served as probands in a family study of comorbidity of substance abuse and anxiety disorders. There was a strong degree of specificity of familial aggregation of both the anxiety disorders and substance disorders. Rates of conduct disorder and depression were elevated among offspring of all affected parents. Inclusion of co-parent disorders in the evaluation of familial transmission in the present study strengthened the findings regarding the specificity of transmission of the anxiety disorders and the links between both parental substance abuse and antisocial personality with child conduct disorder.
