Goitre and the Psychoses

  • Norman Routh Phillips (a1)
Extract

That there is some relationship between goitre and the psychoses is beyond all question. We have only to recall the mental syndromes of Graves' disease and endemic cretinism—goitre occurs in all but a few exceptional cases of the former, and in about 50 per cent, of the latter. Moreover it is by no means uncommon to find goitre in adult myxcedema.
