    Full Text Available Temperaments are imperturbable variations of personality, traits and ways of reacting to the environment that characterize individuals and remain constant throughout several different situations. Temperaments usually play a central role in determining emotional reactions, therefore several temperamental models have attempted to establish the potential relationship between temperaments and affective disorders. According to Hagop Akiskal, affective temperaments are subclinical and subaffective trait-like manifestations of affective disorders. Unlike several models of temperament which were exclusively developed theoretically in order to describe healthy human functioning, later extrapolated to capture the pathological domains of mental and behavioral features, the current model of affective temperaments was developed on classical traditions and mainly based on the observation of subjects with mood disorders and their healthy first degree relatives. There is accumulating evidence concerning the development of affective temperaments based on their adaptive evolutionary characteristics and genetic background, and normative data from large national studies on general and healthy samples indicate their universal characteristics. Studies in affective patient populations indicate that the relationship between affective temperaments and affective illness is more complex than a simple extrapolation from psychopathology and mental health, and affective temperaments may represent a latent state of the staging model, playing a pathoplastic role in mood disorders determining their evolution, clinical features, main characteristics and outcome. A large body of data on affective temperaments has been published during the last decade, deserving a critical analysis presented in this overview.

    Full Text Available Atualmente, vemos transformações no diagnóstico do Transtorno de Humor Bipolar (THB. A prática clínica exige conhecimento mais detalhado da correlação THB - outras doenças psiquiátricas. Nessa revisão não-sistemática, foram abordados aspectos diagnósticos do THB: a histórico, b Espectro Bipolar, c Depressão Atípica (DeA e Disforia Histeróide, d Estados Mistos, e relação THB-Transtornos de Ansiedade, f relação com o diagnóstico de Transtorno de Personalidade Borderline (TPB, g contraponto ao conceito de espectro bipolar. A doença é conhecida desde a Grécia Antiga. Os estudos baseados nas publicações de Hagop Akiskal expandem o diagnóstico para além dos critérios usualmente utilizados, criando o conceito de espectro bipolar. A alta prevalência de comorbidade entre THB e Transtornos de Ansiedade corroboram que ambos compartilham o mesmo substrato neurobiológico. O debate demonstra que não há consenso, expondo a fragilidade dos nossos métodos diagnósticos. Entretanto, a revisão mostra a utilidade de sempre considerar o THB como diagnóstico diferencial.Nowadays, the diagnostic criteria for bipolar disorder (BD have been changed. We need a better awareness about BD-another psychiatry diseases correlation for a good clinical practice. The authors conducted a non-systematic review about some diagnostic topics in BD: a history, b bipolar spectrum, c atypical depression and hysterical disforia, d mixed states, e BD and anxious disorders comorbidity, f BD and borderline personality disorder relationship, g bipolar spectrum contest. The BD has been investigated since Hypocrites time. The studies based on Akiskal's ideas put the BD diagnostic beyond the common diagnostics criteria, establishing a new entity called bipolar spectrum. The high prevalence of comorbidity between BD and anxious disorders perhaps confirm the evidence that they share a same neurobiological substratum. There is no consensus and we realize that
