Stone records in some detail his analysis of a forty-year-old man suffering from duodenal ulcer and various other neurotic symptoms such as marked disturbances in his sexual functioning, periods of depression and anxiety, compulsive character traits and constipation. He compares his psychodynamic findings with those of Alexander and his colleagues, Carel van der Heide, and Garma in their studies of ulcer patients.

The material of this case at least suggests such a possibility.'
