Clinical criteria for orienting the diagnosis (Dosen & Gielen, 1993) include symptoms mimicking a depressive state (apathy, hypopraxia, crying); vegetative symptoms (loss of appetite or weight, stypsis, asthenia); psychomotor agitation with temper tantrums, self-injurious behavior or, conversely, catatonia and stereotypy; regression to previous stages of autonomy (urinary or fecal incontinence); tendency to withdraw from, or lack of interest in, the social sphere; and childish behavior.
