This study investigates the possible consequences of not identifying depressive symptomatology in patients presenting somato-vegetative symptoms & behavior disturbances. 72 cases of masked depression were analyzed, hospitalized & diagnosed in a psychiatric clinic. Symptomatology differed somewhat (table 2) but characteristics critical to the suicidal process were evident.(NBB)
