ABSTRACT
Ventricular and cisternal CSF spaces were quantified in 14 women 12 of whom had cycloid psychoses with postpartum onset. When compared to age-matched female patients with cycloid psychoses or bipolar affective disorders outside the puerperium and neurological controls left ventricular area, planimetric VBR, and superior cerebellar cistern volume were significantly larger in the postpartum psychosis group. This finding could reflect an unspecific brain structural vulnerability marker in some patients with psychoses of the puerperium.
