Letter to the Editor
Sir: Galynker and colleagues present four most interesting
cases of patients whose panic attacks are accompanied by a variety
of psychotic symptoms and in the process alert both clinicians
and researchers to what may be an important but neglected
phenomenon in the development of psychotic disorders.
Few experiences are more stressful than a panic attack. Stress
has been implicated in the exacerbation or onset of schizophrenia.
Indeed, it has been estimated that the risk for the development
of schizophrenia is increased tenfold among persons with
panic attacks compared to the general population.
