The first aim of this study is to make the reader aware of the diagnostic error involved in interpreting certain forms of the initiation (and state) of schizophrenia to be neurotic disorders (depressive, obsessive, phobic, etc.). The second is to highlight that ('nihil novum sub sole') Mayer Grossch and pre-1934 German psychiatry, in general, had already described with great phenomenological depth and precision certain presumably atypical forms of schizophrenia. As Mckenna (1994) recognized ijn hijs book on schizophrenia, the present DSM. IV owes a great part of its content and current relevance to this precision.
