Increasing evidence suggests Bipolar Disorder (BD) to be frequently associated to a history of traumatic experiences and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), with consequent greater symptoms severity, number of hospitalizations and worsening in quality of life. The aim of the present study was to investigate the lifetime exposure to traumatic events and PTSD rates in-patients with BD and to analyze the relationships between PTSD symptoms, clinical characteristics and severity of the mood disorder.

Abstract

Increasing evidence suggests Bipolar Disorder (BD) to be frequently associated to a history of traumatic experiences and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), with consequent greater symptoms severity, number of hospitalizations and worsening in quality of life. The aim of the present study was to investigate the lifetime exposure to traumatic events and PTSD rates in-patients with BD and to analyze the relationships between PTSD symptoms, clinical characteristics and severity of the mood disorder.
