Abstract
The focus was to describe Swedish psychiatrists' experiences of collaboration with healthcare professionals when treating women with postpartum psychosis (PPP). A qualitative design was used, and semi-structured interviews were performed with nine psychiatrists working in psychiatric hospitals in Sweden. Data were analysed using manifest and latent content analysis. The results of these experiences were categorized in this study as: collaboration related to admission, collaboration during inpatient care and collaboration related to discharge. Collaboration with midwives and obstetricians was important in diagnosing the illness, as this often occurred on postnatal wards; and decisions about the form of care for the woman with PPP and for her baby demanded collaboration with various healthcare professionals. Collaboration with nurses was based on expectations and confidence in nurses' competence, and was exceedingly important during inpatient care. When the woman was to be discharged, collaboration with healthcare teams, e.g. outpatient clinic, child health clinic and community services, was required. The conclusions were that psychiatrists collaborate with different professionals in the various phases of the caring process. They rely extensively on nurses' competence when caring for women with PPP, and consider nurses to be their most important collaborators.

Abstract
To estimate the prevalence of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) in Sweden, an inquiry asking for known and possible CGD cases was mailed to paediatric, internal medicine and infectious disease departments all over Sweden. The detected patients were characterized as to genetics and the clinical presentation. Twenty-one patients (belonging to 16 different families) were found, corresponding to a prevalence of approximately 1/450,000 individuals. The patients with X-linked disease, lacking a functional gp91phox protein (n = 12), comprised 57% and 43% of the patients had an autosomal recessive (AR) disease lacking p47phox (n = 7) or p67phox (n = 1), respectively. All unrelated patients with X-linked disease displayed different gene abnormalities such as point mutations predicting nonsense (n = 3), missense (n = 1) or splice site mutations (n = 2), but also a total deletion and a unique 40 base pair duplicature insertion. The patients with p47phox-deficiency showed a GT deletion at a GTGT tandem repeat, and the p67phox-deficient patient displayed a heterozygous in-frame deletion of AAG combined with a large deletion in the other allele. Three patients died during the study period, two from pseudomonas cepacia infections. Patients with X-linked disease had more frequent infections (mean of 1.7 per year), than the patients with AR inheritance (0.5 infections per year). The most common infections were dermal abscesses (n = 111), followed by lymphadenitis (n = 82) and pneumonias (n = 73). Inflammatory bowel disease-like symptoms, mimicking Crohn's disease of the colon, was seen in three CGD patients.
