Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bipolar Depression is rare in early adolescence. Since only rare cases were described in the literature, every case is important. In this article the authors described three cases of Bipolar Depression who were hospitalized during the past three years. All of them started at age 13-14. It is important to diagnose this illness in order to administer the required treatment in the acute phase and preventive treatment afterwards. Experience indicates that treatment for early adolescents is identical with treatment for adults and calls for the same dosage.
