Disease relevance of Hysteria


Psychiatry related information on Hysteria

  • Misdiagnosis as night terrors, nightmares, hysteria, or paroxysmal nocturnal dystonia was common, and the inheritance pattern was often not appreciated [6].
  • The responses of RA patients and normal subjects to most other statements in the MMPI Hypochondriasis, Depression, and Hysteria scales were quite similar [7].
  • Psychiatric manifestations include hysteria, anxiety, depression, phobias, psychosis, organic disorders, agitation, delirium, and altered consciousness ranging from somnolence to coma [8].
  • The effects of chronic sulpiride therapy on growth hormone (GH) secretion were studied in 11 mentally disturbed children, aged 5 to 13 years, five with personality disorders, three with childhood psychoses, one with hysteria, one with anxiety reactions, and one with neurosis [9].
  • Moreover, sex does not appear to modify the ABO blood type distribution in our patients with obsessive-compulsive neurosis, phobic neurosis or hysteria [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Hysteria

  • Lastly, Edward Mellanby's continued work on the rachitic effect of cereals led to the spin-off finding that wheat flour improved with nitrogen chloride, although nontoxic to rats, was responsible for the problem of canine hysteria in dogs that had developed in the 1930s and 1940s [15].
  • The prolonged benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome: anxiety or hysteria [16]?
  • Metoserpate Hydrochloride for the treatment of hysteria in replacement pullets [17].
  • Alleviation of hysteria in laying hens with dietary tryptophan [18].
