Depression, Psychotic Dysfunction, Rickettsial Infection Case Study
300 patients, diagnosed as suffering from depression, or other neuropsychiatric dysfunction have been treated with antibiotic. The reason for this treatment was as follows:
- The symptoms of these patients were similar to those exhibited in chronic Rickettsial diseases.
- The treatment followed the finding that their serum reacted positively to the Giroud * micro-agglutination test.
Giroud Test - specific for testing antibodies to the 5 following antigens (R36): Rickettsia Prowazeki, R. Mooseri, R. Conori, Coxiella Burnetti, Neo-R. Q18. Done by micro agglutination, depending on quality of antigens. Comparitive studies with IFA test gave very similar result.
Positive reaction : presence of antibodies; does not necessarily mean illness.
Negative reaction: does not suppress Ricketsial etiology (R1, R25)
