This is the first-ever history of catatonia, a singular psychiatric illness featuring often bizarre disorders of mind and movement together with fearfulness and anxiety. Unlike most other psychiatric illnesses, it is eminently treatable, the symptoms vanishing as rapidly as they have come. For many years it was considered incorrectly as a subtype of schizophrenia.
