Depression, Psychotic Dysfunction, Rickettsial Infection Case Study

Summary
300 patients, diagnosed as suffering from depression, or other neuropsychiatric dysfunction have been treated with antibiotic. The reason for this treatment was as follows:

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.
