Although described as far back as 1898, the Ganser state is still a subject of controversy and causes discussions regarding its existence as a clinical entity, its psychopathology and its incidence. Lately, Goldin and Macdonald (1955) endeavoured to clarify the meaning of the Ganser state after a critical review of the literature. They provided an illustrative case report with some hitherto unreported features and psychological test results. Although their paper presents a wealth of valuable material, there are still some points which need further discussion and elucidation.
