“The use of LSD in the psychoanalytic treatment of a case of anxiety hysteria”. 
Zeitschrift fur Psychosomatische Medizin und Psychoanalyse (Gottingen).. 1973;19(1):77-87.
A case history involving the use of LSD in psychopharmacological therapy is presented. A 26-year-old married female patient, suffering from anxiety attacks, who had been in analysis for two years, was treated with LSD and psilocybin on three occasions; the results led to great progress in the analysis. The psilocybin experiment took place in a calm atmosphere, involved purely senvery effects on the patient, and did not lead to any progress. The LSD experiments led to very dramatic symbolization of the patient's early family relationships. The patient interpreted the second LSD experiment as a rebirth, and felt that it was possible to completely reshape her life. Ensuing progress was rapid and the patient is currently enjoying excellent mental health.
