Abstract

Erythrocyte, electrolyte (sodium, potassium and magnesium) and urinary amine metabolism (norepinephrine, dopamine, 3 methoxy 4 hydroxymandelic acid and 5 hydroxyindoleacetic acid concentrations were studied over time in a manic depressed patient treated with lithium carbonate. The alterations in these substances, their correlations with each other and with the patient's clinical condition are presented and discussed in terms of possible interactions between electrolyte and biogenic amine metabolism in depression.
