The Psycho-Pathology of Tuberculosis: By D. G. Macleod Munro, M.D., C.M., M.R.C.P. (Ed.). (Oxford University Press, London. Pp. 92. Price 5 s.)

Review by:
D. B.

This little book by Dr. Munro simply recounts the various psychopathological symptoms met with in the various stages of tuberculosis. Very little is suggested to account for these symptoms in relation to the disease, and what explanations are forthcoming seem to be based on physiological processes. The question of the relationship between psychological functioning and organic disease is hardly touched upon.

As regards the treatment of these cases, no new ideas are advanced. The author does suggest that in the case of a phobia co-existing with tuberculosis an analysis may have to be considered; but he thinks that the strain involved on the patient by such a procedure would be contraindicated in a number of patients. This of course is possible with certain types of analysis in vogue; but it would not be the case if psycho-analysis were considered advisable.
