An Unusual Writing Activity in a Case of Depression Dramatically Improved After TreatmentAuthor(s): Chuan-Ya Lee, Hsin-Chien Lee, Yao-Tung Lee
We reported a case of depression who was noted of increased writing activity in an unusual writing style. And the condition improved dramatically after the prescription of antidepressants and low dose antipsychotics.The handwriting may be one of the most complicated components of human mentality. We consider this report not only intriguing but also instructive. Before this, increased writing activity had been reported in several neuropsychological conditions but never in the status of depression, nor did the correlated treatment having been reported. Our case is the first depressive patients to present this condition and dramatically changed after treatment.
