“Veranderung schizophrener Zustandsbilder durch LSD-25”. 
IInd International Congress for Psychiatry, Congress Report. 1959;II:321.
In 22 patients with various forms of schizophrenia, a total of 44 studies with 1, 2 or 4 mcg/kg LSD orally were done. The latency was somewhat longer than in normal subjects, the duration of the effect 6-8 (maximum 12) hours in all but 3 patients in whom oneiric states lasting 2-3 days developed. . The authors summarize their thoroughly described observations and explain that besides the mild disturbance of consciousness in these patients which also occurs in healthy people "2 particular features also appeared: . 1. The transient manifestation of latent symptoms of the actual clinical schizophrenic form - - thus the form of accompanying symptoms, and . 2. The appearance of symptoms which do not accord with the schizophrenic form of the subjects but are always of pure schizophrenic nature (e.g. catatonic disorders in hebephrenic or paranoid patients, paranoid ideas in hebephrenics etc.). The renewed appearance of symptoms of earlier disease periods and especially of the beginning of the acute disease are noteworthy."
