Childhood Psychosis and Monoamine Metabolites in Spinal Fluid.
Gillberg, Christopher; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v13 n4 p383-96 Dec 1983
Analysis of cerebrospinal fluid of 22 psychotic children, 22 normal controls, and Ss with mental retardation, progressive encephalopathy, or meningitis revealed that psychotic Ss had raised levels of homovanillic acid. Thirteen Ss diagnosed as autistic showed isolated inrease of this metabolite. Increased concentration of mongamines was not attributable to retardation. (CL)
