Abstract This interesting clinical study from the material of the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, was undertaken at the suggestion of Dr. Adolf Meyer and supported in part by a grant from the Supreme Council of the Thirty-Third Degree Scottish Rite Masons of the Northern Jurisdiction, U.

The name dementia praecox carries with it grave prognostic implications which if not borne out by time and the fruitlessness of therapy lead to the other horn of the dilemma, viz., the unsoundness of the diagnostic impressions.
