Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article is the result of an effort to help the neurologist deal with the hysterical patient on both a diagnostic and therapeutic level. The conclusion reached is that use of major tranquilizers may be needed to keep hysterical symptomatology under control while diagnostic investigation is proceeding and, if the diagnostic studies are negative, may be used to help ameliorate symptoms in patients unwilling to see a psychiatrist.
