Abstract

Two tests were administered to four groups of patients: the Cornell Medical Index (CMI) and the Manifest Anxiety Scale (MAS). Group I consisted of vertigo patients 65 years of age and older; group II, vertigo patients less than 65 years of age, group III healthy persons 65 years of age and older, group IV healthy persons less than 65 years of age. The second, third and fourth groups served as controls.<BR>1. In the same patients, CMI and MAS test results showed no significant difference when tested during vertigo and during absence of vertigo, in group I and group II.<BR>2. In group I, CMI and MAS test results showed significantly more psychosomatic problems than in group III, and slightly more psychosomatic problems than in group II.<BR>3. It was concluded that the reason CMI and MAS test results showed more psychosomatic problems in group I and group II was because of differences caused by their individual characters.<BR>4. It was concluded that the reason CMI and MAS test results showed more psychosomatic problems in group I was because of differences caused by their individual characters and ages.
