Abstract

Symptoms of depression were quantitatively recorded using a rating scale, for 239 men and 260 women. The frequency of the various symptoms were similar for the sexes, with a high frequency for anxiety, both psychic and somatic. The results show that the symptoms of depressive patients differ from those found in the classic descriptions.
