MR line scan diffusion imaging of the brain in children. (1/88)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: MR imaging of the self-diffusion of water has become increasingly popular for the early detection of cerebral infarction in adults. The purpose of this study was to evaluate MR line scan diffusion imaging (LSDI) of the brain in children. METHODS: LSDI was performed in four volunteers and 12 patients by using an effective TR/TE of 2736/89.4 and a maximum b value of 450 to 600 s/mm2 applied in the x, y, and z directions. In the volunteers, single-shot echo planar imaging of diffusion (EPID) was also performed. The patients (10 boys and two girls) ranged in age from 2 days to 16 years (average age, 6.6 years). Diagnoses included acute cerebral infarction, seizure disorder, posttraumatic confusion syndrome, complicated migraine, residual astrocytoma, encephalitis, hypoxia without cerebral infarction, cerebral contusion, and conversion disorder. In all patients, routine spin-echo images were also acquired. Trace images and apparent diffusion coefficient maps were produced for each location scanned with LSDI. RESULTS: In the volunteers, LSDI showed less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than did EPID. LSDI was of diagnostic quality in all studies. Diffusion abnormalities were present in five patients. Restricted diffusion was present in the lesions of the three patients with acute cerebral infarction. Mildly increased diffusion was present in the lesions of encephalitis and residual cerebellar astrocytoma. No diffusion abnormalities were seen in the remaining seven children. CONCLUSION: LSDI is feasible in children, provides high-quality diffusion images with less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than does EPID, and complements the routine MR examination.  (+info)

Are we overusing the diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic events? (2/88)

In order to determine how often results of video/EEG (V-EEG) studies may change the clinical diagnosis of paroxysmal events, we prospectively studied 100 consecutive patients (75 females, 25 males) admitted for diagnosis of recurrent paroxysmal spells. The presumed diagnosis of the referring physician was obtained. Episodes were classified as epileptic seizures (ES), psychogenic non-epileptic events (PNEE), or physiologic non-epileptic events (PhysNEE). Eighty-seven patients had diagnostic events. A final diagnosis of ES was made in 21 patients, PNEE in 39, PNEE + ES in 20, and PhysNEE in seven. All PhysNEE were unsuspected. ES were misdiagnosed as PNEE more frequently than the reverse (57% vs. 12%, P < 0.001). Among the 64 patients with recorded events who had been suspected of having PNEE, 14 (21.9%) were misdiagnosed: two had PhysNEE and 12 (18.75%) had ES. Among the 23 patients with recorded events who were thought to have ES, 12 (39.1%) were misdiagnosed: seven had PNEE, five PhysNEE. V-EEG changed the clinical diagnosis in 29.8% of the patients with recorded events. Our data suggests that clinicians have become more aware of PNEE since the advent of V-EEG and have little problem recognizing them. However, they may be more prone to make a false-positive diagnosis of PNEE in ES with some atypical features. At this point, efforts should be channeled to better training in the proper recognition of ES that mimic PNEE.  (+info)

Pseudo-narcolepsy: case report. (3/88)

This report describes the case of a 44-year-old woman presenting to a Sleep and Alertness clinic with symptoms of narcolepsy. The patient had clinical and polysomnographic features of narcolepsy, which disappeared after disclosure of severe psychological stress. Following a discussion of the differential diagnosis of narcolepsy, alternative diagnoses are considered. The authors suggest that the patient had a hysterical conversion disorder, or "pseudo-narcolepsy." Careful inquiry into psychological factors in unusual cases of narcolepsy may be warranted.  (+info)

Headaches and other pain symptoms among patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. (4/88)

Studies of patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (NES) typically focus upon the phenomenology and outcome of NES episodes. Little is known, however, about the frequency and nature of other somatic symptoms such as pain, in this population. To assess the frequency, location and severity of symptoms of pain among NES patients, we administered structured interviews to 56 patients, 6 or more months following the diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (NES). Patients were recruited from a tertiary hospital-based epilepsy monitoring unit. Seventy-seven percent of patients suffered from moderate to severe pain, most commonly headache (61%), while neck pain and backache were also common. Twenty-six of 27 patients with persistent NES vs. 17 of 29 patients whose NES resolved experienced moderate to severe pain (P < 0.001). Pain is an under-recognized problem that occurs frequently and with significant severity among NES patients. Pain symptoms are more common among patients with persistent NES than those whose NES resolve.  (+info)

An estimate of the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. (5/88)

The prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures is difficult to estimate. We propose an estimate based on a calculation. We used the following data, which are known or have been estimated, and are generally accepted. A prevalence of epilepsy of 0.5-1%; a proportion of intractable epilepsy of 20-30%; a percentage of these referred to epilepsy centers of 20-50%; and a percentage of patients referred to epilepsy centers that are psychogenic non-epileptic seizures: 10-20%. Using the low estimates, the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures would be 1/50 000. Using the high estimates, the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures would be 1/3000. The prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures is somewhere between 1/50 000 and 1/3000, or 2 to 33 per 100 000, making it a significant neurologic condition.  (+info)

Psychogenesis and somatogenesis of common symptoms. (6/88)

There are situations in clinical practice in which the physican should keep in mind the influence of emotional factors in the elaboration of symptoms and yet should not conclude hastily that "all is in the patient's mind". Symptoms are often the result of complex etiologic factors including life-threatening illnesses presenting psychologic symptoms as an early manifestation. Psychologic disorders and physical illnesses with similar symptoms may coexist in the same patient. There are also cases in which the symptoms are the result of the constant interaction of psychologic and physical factors. Some suggestions to help to clarify the diagnosis are given and a classification of the different clinical situations involved is presented. Becuase physicians should be constantly aware of the complexity of the factors involved in the elaboration of obscure symptoms, some recommendations are given in regard to undergraduate and graduate medical education.  (+info)

Hysterical aphonia--an analysis of 25 cases. (7/88)

Hysteria is a common neurotic disorder in psychiatric practice. Many of its conversion symptoms have not been studied in detail. In the present prospective study in a tertiary care teaching hospital, 25 cases of hysterical aphonia were analysed. There were 17 females and 8 males. Mean age of presentation was 18.4 years in females and 21.2 years in males. Majority of patients were literate upto primary class, belonging to joint family and had urban background. Duration of symptoms was within 2 weeks. Most common precipitating factor was stress of examination or failure followed by quarrels with peers or spouse. In 20% cases, cause was not known. Comorbid psychiatric disorders were found in 80% cases, the most common being mixed anxiety and depressive disorder (36%) followed by generalized anxiety disorder (20%).  (+info)

Functional neuroanatomical correlates of hysterical sensorimotor loss. (8/88)

Hysterical conversion disorders refer to functional neurological deficits such as paralysis, anaesthesia or blindness not caused by organic damage but associated with emotional "psychogenic" disturbances. Symptoms are not intentionally feigned by the patients whose handicap often outweighs possible short-term gains. Neural concomitants of their altered experience of sensation and volition are still not known. We assessed brain functional activation in seven patients with unilateral hysterical sensorimotor loss during passive vibratory stimulation of both hands, when their deficit was present and 2-4 months later when they had recovered. Single photon emission computerized tomography using (99m)Tc-ECD revealed a consistent decrease of regional cerebral blood flow in the thalamus and basal ganglia contralateral to the deficit. Independent parametric mapping and principal component statistical analyses converged to show that such subcortical asymmetries were present in each subject. Importantly, contralateral basal ganglia and thalamic hypoactivation resolved after recovery. Furthermore, lower activation in contralateral caudate during hysterical conversion symptoms predicted poor recovery at follow-up. These results suggest that hysterical conversion deficits may entail a functional disorder in striatothalamocortical circuits controlling sensorimotor function and voluntary motor behaviour. Basal ganglia, especially the caudate nucleus, might be particularly well situated to modulate motor processes based on emotional and situational cues from the limbic system. Remarkably, the same subcortical premotor circuits are also involved in unilateral motor neglect after organic neurological damage, where voluntary limb use may fail despite a lack of true paralysis and intact primary sensorimotor pathways. These findings provide novel constraints for a modern psychobiological theory of hysteria.  (+info)

Background. Conversion disorder is largely managed by neurologists, for whom it presents great challenges to understanding and management. This study aimed to quantify these challenges, examining how neurologists understand conversion disorder, and what they tell their patients.. Methods. A postal survey of all consultant neurologists in the UK registered with the Association of British Neurologists.. Results. 349 of 591 practising consultant neurologists completed the survey. They saw conversion disorder commonly. While they endorsed psychological models for conversion, they diagnosed it according to features of the clinical presentation, most importantly inconsistency and abnormal illness behaviour. Most of the respondents saw feigning as entangled with conversion disorder, with a minority seeing one as a variant of the other. They were quite willing to discuss psychological factors as long as the patient was receptive but were generally unwilling to discuss feigning even though they saw it as ...
Combined spinal epidural (CSE) can provide excellent labor analgesia. Subdural block is also a potential but rare complication of attempted epidural placement during a CSE procedure, which may present as a block that is usually patchy in nature, with a component of sensory and/or motor deficit and a variable duration of action. In addition, a conversion disorder or a functional neurological disorder has been described with epidural and spinal anesthesia in obstetric patients. In this clinical report, we describe a 33-year-old G4P3 at 40 weeks gestation that received an unintentional subdural block as part of her labor analgesia and after an uneventful caesarean delivery presented with a conversion disorder. The rarity of the association between a subdural block and a conversion disorder complicated by the fact that the neurological deficit produced by the subdural block and that produced by a conversion disorder are similar in distribution made the clinical presentation and diagnosis a challenge for the
The authors prospectively studied consecutive neurological inpatients with either motor conversion symptoms or pseudoseizures of recent onset. Patients were administered a structured psychiatric diagnostic interview, a measure of perceived parental care, and a life events inventory. They found that patients with pseudoseizures (N=20, mean age=27 years): 1) were younger than patients with motor conversion symptoms (N=30, mean age=39 years), 2) were more likely to have a borderline personality disorder), 3) were more likely to have a lower perception of parental care and to report incest, and 4) reported more life events in the 12 months before symptom onset. These differences in their characteristics and associated factors raised the question of whether it is helpful to group patients with pseudoseizures and motor conversion symptoms in a single diagnostic category of conversion disorder. An alternative view, that gives primacy to the symptoms rather than a disorder, may enable more precise research
Conversion disorder is a neurological/psychiatric disorder. It is one of a group of psychological disorders called somatoform disorders. Conversion disorder can be difficult to diagnose, but it is treatable.

This condition is primarily characterized by a lump in the throat, not related with eating in any way. This sensation does not arise after choking while eating. Actually, the sensation may be alleviated by eating or drinking. Patients suffering from this condition usually feel as if something has firmly lodged in the throat. The obstruction cannot be swallowed or washed down by drinking hot water or beverages.. Although this condition does not interfere with the swallowing process in any way, it tends to make the activity slightly uncomfortable.. The symptoms of this condition are more or less straightforward. A feeling of obstruction in the throat is the main difficulty that is experienced by patients. There is generally no other discomfort or pain. In more serious cases, patients may suffer from some amount of discomfort in the upper chest. In some cases, suffering individuals may also experience some pain during swallowing. However, even with minor discomfort there is some possibility for ...

Epilepsy is a very complex disorder of the central nervous system. It is characterized by a sudden, disordered and excessive neuronal shock that causes different clinical evidences with specific related electroencephalogram (EEG). Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) can seriously complicate the diagnosis of epilepsy. The separoxysmal events have the same clinical evidences of epilepsy, such as an impairment of the self-control and a range of sensory, motor and mental manifestations, without the typical related electroencephalogram (EEG) because of the absence of an organic cause. The overwhelming majority of Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures are related to psychological factors like dissociation. This is a defense mechanism used to cope stressful events or emotional conflicts. Psychological or psychiatric disorders, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), are frequently associated to Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures. In this article, we present a case report of epilepsy combined with

We present a facile approach to synthesize amorphous iron oxyhydroxide nanosheet from the surfactant-assisted oxidation of iron sulfide nanosheet. The amorphous iron oxyhydroxide nanosheet is porous and has a high surface area of 223 m(2) g(-1). The lithium storage properties of the amorphous iron oxyhydroxide are characterized: it is a conversion-reaction electrode material, and it demonstrates superior rate capabilities (e.g., discharge capacities as high as 642 mAh g(-1) are delivered at a current density of 2 C). The impedance spectroscopy analysis identifies a RC series subcircuit originated by the conversion-reaction process. Investigation of the conversion-reaction kinetics through the RC subcircuit time constant reproduces the hysteresis in the discharge/charge voltage profile. Hysteresis is then connected to underlying thermodynamics of the conversion reaction rather than to a kinetic limitation. [-] ...

The first evidence of functional neurological symptom disorder dates back to 1900 BC, when the symptoms were blamed on the uterus moving within the female body. The treatment varied depending on the position of the uterus, which must be forced to return to its natural position. If the uterus had moved upwards, this could be done by placing malodorous and acrid substances near the womans mouth and nostrils, while scented ones were placed near her vagina; on the contrary, if the uterus had lowered, the document recommends placing the acrid substances near her vagina and the perfumed ones near her mouth and nostrils.[36] In Greek mythology, hysteria, the original name for functional neurological symptom disorder, was thought to be caused by a lack of orgasms, uterine melancholy and not procreating. Plato, Aristotle and Hippocrates believed that a lack of sex upset the uterus. The Greeks believed that it could be prevented and cured with wine and orgies. Hippocrates argued that a lack of regular ...

Some evidence suggests that psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) are associated with increased mortality. The authors obtained death certificate information in a cohort of 260 patients who presented with PNES between 1999 and 2004. The follow-up period averaged 7.92 years, during which 17 patients died, 12/17 were under the age of 75 years, giving a premature (,75 years) mortality rate of 0.58%, compared with a Scottish mortality rate for the 40-75 years age group of 0.41% per year. The main predictor of death was the patient age at presentation of PNES. There was no correlation with withdrawal of anticonvulsant medication, and death certificate information provided no evidence to suggest that the deaths were related to the seizure disorder. The population had a high mean deprivation rank, providing a possible explanation for a modest increase in premature death rate. ...

Beginning in August 2011, 14 students (13 girls and one boy) from the LeRoy Junior-Senior High School began reporting myriad perplexing medical symptoms including verbal outbursts, tics, seizure activity and speech difficulty.[8] In mid-January, five days after a community meeting in which the New York State Department of Health stated their diagnosis could not be revealed publicly due to privacy concerns, two of the girls appeared on NBCs Today Show to discuss their frustration with not getting adequate answers.[9] The next day, Dr. Laszlo Mechtler, a neurologist treating most of the girls, was given permission to share the diagnosis of conversion disorder and mass psychogenic illness. Unsatisfied with the investigations results, the girls and their parents spoke out publicly against their diagnosis, stating they believed the situation warranted further scrutiny from outside sources. Alternative medical theories for condition were suggested, including Tourette syndrome and PANDAS, which Dr. ...

Stress is a prime example. It had been clinically proven that increased levels of stress and/or anxiety over a long period of time lead are damaging to physical health. Hair loss, ulcers, dermatological faults, sleep deprivation, stomach aches, migraines and other, surprisingly complex conditions are all potential results of the body overproducing the hormones needed for the flight-or-fight response that acute stress triggers, meant to aid survival in short-term situations, for extended periods of time.. There are also cases where the brain-body messaging system simply does not operate appropriately. Most common in children and youth, this family of somatization disorders includes most prominently, somatic symptom disorder and conversion disorder. Individuals suffering from these disorders may experience anything from abdominal pain to fatigue to sensations of tingling/temporary paralysis to even seizure-like episodes as a result of the brain misinterpreting strong emotions into physical ...
Conversion disorder is characterized by voluntary motor or sensory function deficits that suggest neurologic or medical conditions but are rather associated with clinical findings that are not compatible with such conditions. Somatic symptom disorder is characterized by one or more somatic symptoms that are distressing or result in significant disruption of daily life. To meet DSM-5 criteria, these patients must have excessive thoughts, feelings, or behaviors related to the somatic symptoms or associated health concerns as manifested by at least one of the following: disproportionate and persistent thoughts about the seriousness of ones symptoms; persistently high levels of anxiety about health or symptoms; excessive time or energy devoted to these symptoms or health concerns. Importantly, even if any one somatic symptom is not continuously present, the state of being symptomatic is persistent (typically more than 6 months). ...

Foreign accent syndrome (FAS) is speech disorder that causes a sudden change to speech so that a native speaker is perceived to speak with a foreign accent. FAS is most often caused by damage to the brain caused by a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Other causes have also been reported including multiple sclerosis and conversion disorder and in some cases no clear cause has been identified.. Speech may be altered in terms of timing, intonation, and tongue placement so that is perceived as sounding foreign. Speech remains highly intelligible and does not necessarily sound disordered.. FAS has been documented in cases around the world, including accent changes from Japanese to Korean, British English to French, American-English to British English, and Spanish to Hungarian.. Some common speech changes associated with FAS include:. ...

Conversion disorder (CD) refers to the presence of deficits affecting the voluntary motor or sensory functions. These symptoms suggest neurological or other organic causes, but they are believed to be associated with psychological stressors. The presentation of conversion symptoms mimics a broad spectrum of neurological diseases. The symptoms were initially described in the context of hysteria, and have always been subject to debate and conceptual confusion. The debates are in the manner in which the disorder is classified within the two major current nosologies: in the DSM-IV (American Psychiatric Association, 1994) CD it i listed as a type of somatoform disorder; In the ICD-10 (World Health Organization, 1992) it is given as a dissociative disorder. This article follows the DSM-IV criteria to describe the context of hypnosis in the treatment of the disorder. However in the theoretical review the article presents arguments for a dissociative classification. ...

So, as a psychologist working with someone who has high alexithymia and PNES, what might this look like?. First off, when you explain to the patient, PNES is a stress disorders, and ask, has anything stressful occurred that might have triggered your seizure? The patient will often truthfully respond with a no.. Additionally, because patients with alexithymia tend to have memory deficits for memories that are emotionally laden, again, a negative response should not be unexpected. The patient may very well have forgotten that unhappy or tense event that preceded the seizure!. So how would a psychologist work with someone who is alexithymic and has PNES?. There are several ways to approach this, but for the most part, rather than simply asking if something stressful occurred in the week; it is necessary to ask for a report of the hours and days prior to the seizure. As the patient outlines the events of the week, the patient may encounter something that they had forgotten or suppressed, or ...
Hysteria has been the subject of controversy for many years, with theorists arguing about whether it is best explained by a hidden organic cause or by malingering and deception. However, it has been shown that hysterical paralysis cannot be explained in any of these terms. With the recent development of cognitive psychiatry, one may understand psychiatric and organic delusions within the same conceptual framework. Here I contrast hysterical conversion with anosognosia. They are indeed remarkably similar, though the content of their (...) respective delusions is the opposite. In hysterical paralysis, patients are not aware of their preserved ability, whereas in anosognosia for hemiplegia, patients are not aware of their disability. Four main explanations have been provided to account for anosognosia: metacognitive, attentional, motor, and motivational views. I will apply each of these accounts to hysterical paralysis and show that, at each level, hysterical conversion is the reverse of ...
To an outside observer, Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) look like epileptic seizures. The manifestations of PNES include collapses, impaired consciousness, and seizure-related injuries. However, unlike epileptic seizures, which are the result of abnormal electrical discharges in the brain, most PNES are an automatic psychological response to a trigger perceived as threatening.
Family dysfunction was reported in both ES and PNES participants, but greater family dysfunction was experienced by male participants in both groups. Aspects of FF predicted HRQOL in patients with PNES and ES differentially. FF may be an important treatment target to enhance coping in these groups, …
This is a pilot, prospective, single center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, that assesses the number of NES in patients treated with flexible dose sertraline (Zoloft). This study will provide outcomes data and the effect size necessary for a future R01, multi-center randomized control trial. Secondary objective variables include reduction in depression, anxiety, impulsivity scores, and improvement in psychosocial functioning.. After being diagnosed with NES by video electroencephalogram monitoring (vEEG), up to 50 participants will be enrolled and monitored during a two week lead in period for their baseline NES and psychosocial symptoms and functioning. At week 2, they will be blindly randomized to the treatment arm with flexible dose sertraline (25 to 200mg) or to the placebo control arm. The dose will be titrated over 4 weeks up to 200mg or to dose limited by side effects. The subjects will stay on their maximum fixed dose for the next 4 weeks. At week 10, the subjects ...
Conversion reaction is, you know, in the old day, people would get paralysis or blindness. Its a way of expressing emotional turmoil through physical symptoms. And it can happen in a group. It can be contagious. I mean, some people speculate its the basis of the Salem witch trial. That was a group that was having a mass hysteria. But it just didnt pass the sniff test for me, particularly some of the girls I met, like Thera. It seemed so clearly biological. It seemed -- it just seemed. It didnt feel like a psychiatric event to me ...

Theres only one problem. Sodium-ion batteries do not perform as well or as long as their lithium ion cousins - yet. That may be changing, however, as research into sodium-ion batteries continues. Professor Jong Min Yuk and a team of scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology report they have made significant progress toward creating high performing sodium-ion batteries by experimenting with copper sulfide electrodes. Their research was published recently in the journal Advanced Science.. Researchers presented a new strategy for extending sodium-ion batteries cyclability using copper sulfide as the electrode material. This strategy has led to high-performance conversion reactions and is expected to advance the commercialization of sodium-ion batteries as they emerge as an alternative to lithium ion batteries.. The research confirmed that copper sulfide is a superior electrode material that is pulverization-tolerant and induces capacity recovery. Using them should allow ...

In order to address power and energy demands of mobile electronics and electric cars, Li-ion technology is urgently being optimized by using alternative materials. This article presents a review of our recent progress dedicated to the anode and cathode materials that have the potential to fulfil the crucial factors of cost, safety, lifetime, durability, power density, and energy density. Nanostructured inorganic compounds have been extensively investigated. Size effects revealed in the storage of lithium through micropores (hard carbon spheres), alloys (Si, SnSb), and conversion reactions (Cr2O3, MnO) are studied. The formation of nano/micro core-shell, dispersed composite, and surface pinning structures can improve their cycling performance. Surface coating on LiCoO2 and LiMn2O4 was found to be an effective way to enhance their thermal and chemical stability and the mechanisms are discussed. Theoretical simulations and experiments on LiFePO4 reveal that alkali metal ions and nitrogen doping ...
I am a 50 year old woman recently diagnosed with non-epileptic seizures. BUT, I have no history of mental illness, no past traumatic experience -- no reason to be experiencing these seizures for psychological reasons. II am happily married for 29 years, have three happy and successful children, I love my job, and feel happy and well adjusted. In addition to the seizues, I constantly feel off-balance. I have a slight tremor, sometimes noticeable, but most of the time inside my body when I move around. As long as I stay fairly quiet and immobile, I am okay. I feel extremely cold, but only in spells, and I also have spells of extreme exhaustion. My MRI showed only one small patch of white matter noted as insignificant. I was referred to a psychiatrist who put me on Pristiq even though I do not feel ANY signs of depression and also Clorazipan for anxiety even though I dont feel anxious. Neither of these seem to be helping although I have only been on them for three weeks. I find many other possible ...
This case report describes one of the countless examples of a tragic outcome for an inherited metabolic disorder because of late diagnosis. This fact is additionally painful because the cooccurrence in two siblings of similar symptoms lasting for years did not lead to the correct diagnosis in time.. The story underlines the necessity of including the measurement of total homocysteine in all patients with unexplained neurological symptoms, particularly because metabolic disorders associated with hyperhomocysteinemia are treatable. Because of the low incidence of inherited metabolic diseases and the related limited experience with them by the majority of physicians, physicians often consider metabolic diseases at the end of the list of differential diagnoses. There are other classic reasons for the delayed diagnosis of diseases associated with hyperhomocysteinemia. There is limited knowledge that homocysteine, as a marker of several diseases, should be included in metabolic screenings (as done ...
HYSTERIA, a term applied to an affection which may manifest itself by a variety of symptoms, and which depends upon a disordered condition of the highest nervous centres. It is characterized by psychical peculiarities, while in addition there is often derangement of the functions subserved by the lower cerebral and spinal centres. Histological examination of the nervous system has failed to disclose associated structural alterations.. By the ancients and by modern physicians down to the time of Sydenham the symptoms of hysteria were supposed to be directly due to disturbances of the uterus (Gr. barEpa, whence the name). This view is now universally recognized to be erroneous. The term functional is often used by English neurologists as synonymous with hysterical, a nomenclature which is tentatively advantageous since it is at least non-committal. P. J. Mains has defined hysteria as a state in which ideas control the body and produce morbid changes in its functions. P. Janet, who has done ...
