The results of fluphenazine decanoate on a group of 53 patients are evaluated and the long acting qualities of the drug and its actual effectiveness are considered. Psychopathological aspects incisively modified by the drug are those present in schizophrenic forms of the paranoid type with psychotic personality structure and notably autistic behavioral traits. Some hypotheses are suggested concerning the evaluation of secondary effects in relation to the possibility that psychiatric workers link these somatic effects to the defences of the patient thereby using their presence as a way towards reconstruction of personality.
