Case Number 28

Part of the Archimedes book series (ARIM, volume 54)

Abstract

In this case Xu Shuwei discusses yet another patient to whom he could not treat, providing many more details. The reason may be that although this patient showed severe symptoms of mental impairment, the doctors, who treated her before Xu, incorrectly diagnosed her. Their therapies, instead of helping the patient, led to a crisis. The disorder reached a stage where treatment could no longer be effective.
