Despite a stable remission attained in several months, a patient with paranoid schizophrenia suspected of homicide of four persons has been hospitalized in detention centers for ten consecutive years. Authors discuss difficulties and efforts involved in quashing the preventive measure (i.e. releasing the patient).
