Example text

Under the term catatonia, a broad range of relatively complex motor features were described, involving muscle groups at various sites, and in some cases also ‘‘characterised by similarity to purposeful acts’’ [9]. These features included stupor, negativism, stereotypies, catalepsy, automatism, mannerisms, excitement, and echopraxia [17]. Given the evolving nature of the definition of catatonia and the variety of phenomena subsumed, it is not possible in this chapter to cover the topic exhaustively, as has McKenna [18].

These similarities led Farran-Ridge [6] to propose that movement disorders in schizophrenia and encephalitis lethargica shared a pathological basis with other diseases known to involve the basal ganglia. ’’ Although the similarities between catatonic schizophrenia and epidemic encephalitis were ‘‘obvious and fascinating’’ [22], patients’ subjective experience 26 Barbenel and Barnes of motor disturbance and observation of mental state could sometimes distinguish the two conditions. In contrast to those with catatonia, patients with encephalitis were able to ‘‘see their disturbance objectively; though spontaneous movement is extremely difficult for them, they can carry out the same movements by request from someone else.
