Abstract

The paper presents three SM patients with concurrent mental disorders of various symptomatology-paranoid syndrome, anorexia nervosa, and depressive syndrome. The cases reported exemplify that the structure of mental disorders associated with SM may be most complex, leading to a number of diagnostic problems and doubts as to the choice of an appropriate therapeutic strategy.
