Abstract

A study of 500 psychiatric clinic patients indicated that no psychiatric disorder was free of conversion symptoms. Significant differences in prevalence between patients with and those without conversion symptoms were found for hysteria, antisocial personality, secondary affective disorder, and primary affective disorder. Race, sex, and age were not significantly associated with conversion symptoms but level of education was. This resulted partly from the lower educational achievement of those with hysteria and antisocial personality but was significant even when these disorders were excluded.
