Extract

Heredity is the most important factor in the causation of recurrent insanity, and Dr. Pilcz quotes many distinguished authors in support of this view. Kraepelin puts the proportion of cases of recurrent insanity with hereditary taint at 80 per cent., while Morel regarded folie circulaire as a manifestation of hereditary taint.
