PMID:  10867734     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The incidence of acute myocardial infarction is increased in the winter months. Seasonality of mood and behavior is common throughout the general population. Increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with depressive disorders have been well documented. The author suggests that seasonal mood changes may contribute to the increased incidence of acute myocardial infarction in the winter. The author further suggests that patients with cardiovascular disorders who suffer from seasonal mood changes should be identified and receive the appropriate treatment for seasonal depressive symptoms that may improve the quality of life for these individuals and reduce their incidence of acute myocardial infarction.
