Schizophrenia was mentioned as an alternate term for dementia praecox in the Statistical Manual. Together Kahlbaum and Hecker were the first to describe and name such syndromes as dysthymiacyclothymiaparanoiacatatoniaand hebephrenia. Based on his theory that dementia praecox is the product of autointoxication emanating from the sex glands, Kraepelin experimented, without success, with injections of thyroid, gonad and other glandular extracts.
The ICD still paraphrrnia “hebephrenic” to designate the third type.
Kraepelin viewed dementoa praecox as a progressively deteriorating disease from which no one recovered. In the next instance the term is used to argue that the illness course for those who suffer mania does not normally terminate in an early form of dementia Morelp.
Chicago Medical Book Co. Dowbiggin inaccurately states that Morel used the term on page of the first volume of his publication Etudes cliniques Dowbigginp.
The diagnostic criteria were vague, minimal and wide, amd either concepts that no longer exist or that are now labeled as personality disorders for example, schizotypal personality disorder. Kraepelin noted demejtia dissemination of his new disease concept when in he enumerated the term’s appearance in almost twenty articles in the German-language medical press. Indeed, until the dementka of Pick and Kraepelin, Morel’s term had vanished without a trace and there is little evidence to suggest that either Pick or indeed Kraepelin were even aware of Morel’s use of the term until long after they had published their own disease concepts bearing the same name.
It was applied as a means of setting apart a group of young men and women who were suffering from “stupor. In this way, we were able to see what kind of mistakes had been made and were able to follow-up the reasons for the wrong original diagnosis.

Eugen Bleuler reported in that in many cases there was no inevitable progressive decline, there was temporary remission in some cases, and there were even cases of near recovery with the retention of some residual defect. The term lived on due to its promotion in the publications of the National Committee on Mental Hygiene founded in and the Eugenics Records Office These findings have many implications for the ways in which mental illness is conceptualized and classified. Dementia praecox was characterized by disordered intellectual functioning, whereas manic-depressive illness was principally a disorder of affect or mood; and the former featured constant deterioration, virtually no recoveries and a poor outcome, while the latter featured periods of exacerbation followed by periods of remission, and many complete recoveries.
Prognosis course and outcome began to feature alongside signs and symptoms in the description of syndromes, and he added a class of psychotic disorders designated “psychic degenerative processes”, three of which were borrowed from Kahlbaum and Hecker: He used it at the Worcester Lunatic Hospital in Massachusetts in the fall of This made the psychiatric literature of the time confusing since, in a strict sense, Kraepelin’s disease was not Bleuler’s disease.
The term “dementia praecox” was first used in by Arnold Pick —a professor of psychiatry at Charles University in Prague. Until the terms dementia praecox and schizophrenia were used interchangeably in American psychiatry, with occasional use of the hybrid terms “dementia praecox schizophrenia ” or “schizophrenia dementia praecox “.
Symptom overlap between schizophrenia and bipolar mood disorder: Fromwhen DSM-III totally reshaped psychiatric diagnosis, French psychiatry began to finally alter its views of diagnosis to converge with the North American system.
But perhaps the most important reason for the longevity of Kraepelin’s term was its inclusion in as an official diagnostic category in the uniform system adopted for comparative statistical record-keeping in all American mental institutions, The Statistical Manual for the Use of Institutions for the Insane. Scientific American Mind March Attacking the “brain mythology” of Meynert and the positions of Griesinger and GuddenKraepelin advocated that the ideas of Kahlbaum, who was then a marginal and little known figure in psychiatry, should be followed.
It is the concept in this popular notion of psychosocial incapacity that forms the basis for the idea of legal incapacity.
This was republished in and with a new version, based on the seventh edition of Kraepelin’s Lehrbuch appearing in and reissued in Karl Kahlbaum made an appeal for the adoption of the clinical method in psychiatry in his book on catatonia. Historical and obsolete mental and behavioural disorders History of psychiatry Dementi medical terms Schizophrenia.
Classification; Depressive Symptoms; Mania; Diagnosis. In this edition dementia praecox is still essentially hebephrenia, and it, dementia paranoides and catatonia are described as distinct psychotic disorders among the “metabolic disorders leading to dementia”.
There he established a research program based on Kahlbaum’s proposal for a more exact qualitative clinical approach, and his own innovation: Some argued that existing diagnoses such as “delusional insanity” or “adolescent insanity” were better or more clearly defined.
In the seventh,edition of PsychiatrieKraepelin accepted the possibility that a small number of patients may recover from dementia praecox.
Vague dimensional approaches based on symptoms—so highly favored by the Meyerians and psychoanalysts—were overthrown. The primary disturbance in dementia praecox was seen to be a disruption in cognitive or mental functioning in attention, memory, and goal-directed behaviour.

He was also the first to apply Eugen Bleuler’s term “schizophrenia” in the form of “schizophrenic reaction” in at the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic of the Johns Hopkins Hospital.
It is a description and not a diagnostic category Morelp.

German psychiatrist Emil Kraepelin — popularised it in his first detailed textbook descriptions of a condition that eventually became a dfmentia disease concept and relabeled as schizophrenia. What convinced me of the superiority of the clinical method adn diagnosis followed here over the traditional one, was the certainty with which we could predict in conjunction with our new concept of disease the future course of events.
