Study finds most schizophrenia patients only suffer from anxiety

The results of a recent study suggest that more than half of the people in Hawaii and throughout the country who are diagnosed with schizophrenia each year may only suffer from anxiety. A team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University studied the cases of 54 patients who were referred to a Baltimore clinic after being diagnosed with schizophrenia by a general practitioner, and they found that only 26 of them actually suffered from the condition. Most of the patients were eventually diagnosed with either anxiety or some sort of mood disorder.

Much has been made of the sexual abuse scandal of Catholic priests. Stories of abuse going back decades have been published in the national news as well as in Hawaii. Over the past 50 years, there have been over 10,000 accusations of sexually predatory behavior involving several thousand priests.

Diagnostic errors have long been known to be a leading factor in malpractice among hospitalized patients. However, separate reports from two malpractice insurers have found that such mistakes are behind the majority of all medical malpractice claims. Residents of Hawaii may be interested to know the conclusions of these reports.
