TheMMPI profile for the majority of neurosis patients was characterized pri-marily by the elevations on scales 1 , 2,3 and 7,on Chinese T-scores of60. The two-point code type included 12/21, 13/31, 23/32, or 27/72 codetype.
All 12 neuropathy patients had a moderate to severe sensorimotor demyelinating neuropathy.
In 11 of the 12 neuropathy patients the paraproteinaemia was of IgM type and 10 of them had a positive antibody titre against LK1 and HexLK1, acidic glycolipids with a terminal glucuronyl-3-sulphate group.
However, none of the ethambutol-induced optic neuropathy patients was found to exhibit any pathogenic LHON mtDNA mutation.
QTc intervals were measured using an electrocardiogram and other autonomic function tests, in 66 neuropathy patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (59.0±12.5 years; mean ± SD).
It is the most common treatable acquired polyneuropathy and represents a significant number of initially undiagnosed neuropathy patients.
The patients were divided into five diagnostic groups: depressives, neurotics other than depressive, psychotics other than depressive, alcoholics and personality disorders.
The patient sample was divided into five diagnostic groups: depressives, neurotics other than depressive, psychotics other than depressive, alcoholics and personality disorders.
When this was done it became evident that early bereavement was not a significant factor in either the neurotics or the psychotics.
Sixty female patients exhibiting the quadrad of neurotic symptoms: giddiness, palpitation, nausea and general fatigue were compared to a control group of forty female neurotics whose symptoms did not show this constellation.
When compared to controls, culture bound neurotics were found to have significantly higher proportions of the husbandless, the childless and those experiencing threats of husband loss.
