Medical conditions

Depression can be an integral part of the symptomatology of some medical conditions, including neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis, and anaemia; endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism; virus infections such as influenza; and deficiencies of vitamins such as B12 and folate.

Manic symptoms may be due to organic brain lesions, especially in the frontal lobe; toxic confusional states; and endocrine disorders such as thyrotoxicosis or Cushing's syndrome.
