Abstract

The group of cases followed for 5 years is small but unselected. It constitutes a fairly acute medical service. Twentyeight of III admissions have made recoveries which they have held from 2 to 5 years, a total of 110 years reclaimed. Deaths were in general accounted for by obvious conditions on admission—including old age. Dementia praecox cases are still in hospital.Looking backward, the story of each individual has made us wiser about the outcome in any given instance. Looking forward, these life sections give us a standard by which to judge new therapeutic measures. It is evident that a new treatment will find it hard to show results with the recovery group (A) and with the group of deaths (C). We shall await a procedure which will make complete a partial recovery and stabilize those who cannot keep a good balance (B), and which can save those who nowadays go from year to year "unimproved" (D).
