Abstract

From a group of 80 hospitalized boys, 41 with plasma dopamine-β-hydroxylase (DβH) ≤ 6 μM/min/L were compared with 39 boys with plasma (DβH ≥ 15 μM/min/L. The low group had more diagnoses of Conduct Disorder, undersocialized, as determined by the diagnosing child psychiatrist. On a structured diagnostic instrument, the DISC/DISC-P, the high group had more diagnoses of Dysthymic Disorder and Separation Anxiety Disorder. Twenty-four-hour urine catecholamines and their metabolites were obtained on 50 subjects. The results show differences in norepinephrine metabolism in the low group.
