To of page the arising phase affective frustration are inherent in various expressiveness of the phenomenon of mental immaturity and autokhtonno. Of page is observed at schizophrenia within a low-progreduated form of a current, but also meets in the initial period of other its forms. Less often than G. the page is described at some forms of psychopathies (geboidny, emotionally stupid).

The originality of the emotional frustration which are combined with relative safety of intellectual functions formed the basis for G.'s reference by the village to so-called moral insanity (moral insanity), a cut was described as an independent disease. Within it by the symptomatic principle various states combined psychopathological and nosologically. In a crust, time it is a concept is of only historical interest.

The clinical picture

G. page is shown by roughness earlier unusual for the patient and enmity in the relations with people around with senseless opposition and negativism to the standard way of life, construction in authority of all negative. Ugly and comical forms of imitation fashion in clothes, eccentricity and pretentiousness of outward and behavior in general, deliberate forwardness and a payasnichanye are characteristic. Despite safe intellectual opportunities, ability to purposeful systematic activity is gradually lost. Interests and occupations of patients accept the nature of unproductive «supervaluable» hobbies or aimless pastime and in many respects are defined by the accruing weakening of self-checking. Patients throw school, irregularly go to work, idle wander on streets, without thinking, go to other cities «to learn life», easily get under influence of antisocial persons and make offenses.

The persistent aspiration to permission of abstract problems with simultaneous withdrawal from really significant activity is characteristic of G. of the page arising in youthful years (15 — 17 years) (a so-called metaphysis. intoxication, dogmatic nonsense). At the same time judgments of patients are deprived of depth of judgment of problems, are often imitative; reformatory plans are projected without real opportunities and a situation, are followed by empty rebelliousness and a claim for originality of outlook.

Inadequacy, small motivation and quite often perverted nature of emotional reactions and inclinations are inherent to patients with G. of page. Sharply feelings of sympathy, compassion, a debt decrease; full ignoring of ethical representations and indifference to opinion of people around is found. Social factors exert impact on external manifestations of G. of page.

Pathogenetic G. is connected by page with the period of puberty, patients with G. of page quite often have a hereditary Burdeness psychopathies of a schizoid circle.

The diagnosis

Differential diagnosis is carried out with mental manifestations fiziol, pubertal crisis, with asocial forms of behavior of persons with frustration of inclinations (e.g., at psychopatholike states owing to organic lesion of a brain after encephalitis, cherepnomozgovy injuries, at endocrinopathies, an oligophrenia, hron, alcoholism, etc.). Pages at schizophrenia are characteristic inadequacy of acts with loss of their communication with a real situation of G., loss of emotional interest in surrounding, the uniform and stereotypic nature of the activity which is quite often taking the form of «supervaluable» inclinations.
