The syndrome is defined with a clear diagnosis, prognosis and range of management strategies, differentiated from other similar psychiatric, neurological and general medical conditions. It challenges accepted doctrines in the classification and biology of the mood disorders and defines melancholia as a treatable mental illness. Described for millennia in medical texts and used as a term in literature and poetry, melancholia was included within early versions of the major diagnostic classificatory systems, but lost favor in later editions. This book updates the arguments for the diagnosis, describes its characteristics in detail and promotes treatment and prevention."@en ;
