A conflict between neurology and psychiatry and controversies about psychoanalysis played an important role in the establishment of psychiatry in the general hospital. This article reviews the impact of this conflict on the establishment of an independent Department of Psychiatry in the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York during the first half of the twentieth century. A unique opportunity is provided to consider the relationships and personalities of the individuals involved, as well as economic, social, and scientific factors, including the introduction of psychoanalysis as a major psychiatric treatment.
