chapter  IX
A Case of Anxiety Hysteria
Pages 52

THIS patient was an unmarried girl of twenty, born in America. At the time she became ill she was employed as secretary

to a business man. Her previous history revealed nothing of importance. Except for the usual diseases of childhood she had. always been in good health. The physician who referred her to me, a very careful internist, reported that he had examined her. most thoroughly and found no organic trouble. Neurological examination was also negative.
