Latin American Contributions to Psychiatric Nosology and Classification

  • Miguel R. Jorge
  • Juan E. Mezzich

Abstract

If we consider the complexity of human behavior and its pathology, the principles and methods of diagnosis and classification in psychiatry require creativity and solid judgment as well as applicability in the setting in which they will be used. In recent years, growing international concern has been reflected in a large number of papers related to classification systems (eg, Sartorius 1988, Frances et al 1989, Mezzich 1989).
