Abstract

The authors studied case records of 27 men who had been diagnosed as having hysterical personality, although they note that the current literature assumes that the diagnosis of hysterical personality applies predominantly to women. They believe that not recognizing the hysterical personality in men is not only a common diagnostic error but antitherapeutic and counterproductive as well.
