Why[edit]

Why is this named Ganser syndrome? Who is the namesake?--Hraefen 08:18, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

prevalence of true psychosis in prisons[edit]

I think it would be helpful to point out the true association of psychosis in prisons which five times the population rate. The results of this study have been confirmed by others: http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/162/4/774 Notpayingthepsychiatrist (talk) 20:37, 11 April 2008 (UTC)


Children as young as 10 have been diagnosed with this disorder - see Nader v Urban Transit Authority of New South Wales (1985) 2 NSWLR 501 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bear77star (talkcontribs) 13:04, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I feel that many of the names that Ganser syndrome is also known as in the first paragraph are unfounded. Prion disease is a well-categorized neurological illness due to aggregation of malformed peptides. Other names in this list are also untrue or wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.118.116.156 (talk) 02:05, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Gange syndrome is a disorder, not 'fake'[edit]

The article currently reads:

"This last name, prison psychosis, is sometimes used because the syndrome occurs most frequently in prison inmates, where it may represent an attempt to gain leniency from prison or court officials."

If it was an attempt at gaining leniency, it would not be a disorder. This statement makes absolutely no sense.
