This chapter discusses Psychopathia sexualis in more depth: its etiology, diagnosis, effects on the human organism, prognosis, and therapy. At the same time the chapter considers the difficulty of identifying the disease Psychopathia sexualis—partly because it creeps on stealthily and partly because it lacks particularly characteristic symptoms and is easily confused with the onset of other diseases, especially scrofula and worm infestation. To flesh out the discussion even further, the chapter takes special note of the patient’s age, sex, and lifestyle choices, among other things—citing how each of these factors play out in terms of a prognosis, and, ultimately, a cure for Psychopathia sexualis.
