We report on a 41-year-old patient admitted for refractory arterial hypertension that had developed after a curative chemotherapy regimen due to seminoma stadium IIb four years ago. After exclusion of secondary forms of arterial hypertension (actually unsuccessfully treated with 5 different antihypertensive drugs) we performed a controlled medication intake-trial in our outpatient clinic. 90 minutes after taking the pills the patient complained of dizziness and perspiration while hypotension and bradycardia were measured simultaneously...

This article on the German economist and sociologist Max Weber (1864-1920) continues our pathographic and psychohistoric studies on the interrelations between his life, his illness, and his work on "Protestantic Ethics and the Spirit of Capitalism". In a former paper (Frommer u. Frommer, 1993) we focussed on Weber's definition of modern society as an "iron cage" determined by Western rationalism. His theory, which shows that this cultural background demands a great amount of role conformity from the individual, converges with current psychopathological approaches on the personality of depressed patients...

We investigated the frequency of personality disorders (PDs) and the relationship between the presence of PD and the 4-month outcome of depression under adequate antidepressant therapy in a Japanese sample of 96 outpatients with non-bipolar major depression. The diagnosis of PD was made using a structured interview method (the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R Personality Disorders) and after severe depressive symptoms were reduced. Any one kind of PD was found in 54.2% of the sample. The most frequent was avoidant (35...

The present study reports findings concerning the hypothesis whether patients with narcissistic self-system disturbances show more obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms as compared to patients without such disturbances. Ninety-one patients meeting DSM-III-R criteria for anorexia nervosa (AN) or bulimia nervosa (BN) were investigated using the Narzissmusinventar (NI), the Hamburger-Zwangsinventar (HZI), the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) and the Eating Disorder Inventory (EDI). The NI-data demonstrated a great variance of self-system disturbances in AN and BN; a cluster analysis identified two different clinical features...

After a clinical example the migraine attack is interpreted as an attempt to reparate the hurted self. A comparison with psychoanalytic literature shows that migraine attacks were seen in the past above all under dynamic aspects of the drives and not under a narcisstic point of view. Specific genetic influences lead to a negative cathexis of the self and to obsessional defenses against sadness and mourning. The migraine attack generally decrease in the middle age of the life because of cathexis-changes in the self and a reduction of the libidinal drive in this age...

Paranoid phenomena can be seen to arise from pathological narcissism. As a result of certain kinds of trauma to the ego-ideal and/or losses of important self-object relationships, the self becomes dislodged from internal agencies and representations. Narcissistic cathexis of the self to these internal psychic structures loosens and hope, aspiration, affection and will become markedly diminished. Meaningful goals and choices become impossible to adopt and make. The paranoid patient is internally at "loose ends"; he is lost...

The therapy of a patient suffering from secondary narcolepsy is described. The illness and the function of the symptom as a defense-mechanism are analysed. Sleep appears to be an ontogenetically archaic reaction to extreme--real and neurotic--dangers, which there is not possibility to escape from. The defense against extreme dangers is the withdrawal of all object-cathexis; following Freuds explanations this means: Sleep. In the patient the danger consisted of a regression to a narcisstic position: The symptom helped to avoid a separation of instincts in form of on the one hand narcisstic rage, on the other hand symbiosis...
