The (Frequently) Neuroleptic (Potentially) Malignant Syndrome

  • A. M. P. Kellam (a1)

Extract

Since a previous review (Kellam, 1987), the subject of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) has continued to cause considerable interest, particularly in the USA where there is still controversy about its frequency, despite two attempts to survey prospectively all cases admitted to two different hospitals. Cases of NMS are now being more widely recognised by non-psychiatrists, especially geriatricians.
