Sluggishly progressing schizophrenia was a fifth category of schizophrenia diagnosed by psychiatrists in the Soviet Union. At the time, Western psychiatry recognised only four types of schizophrenia: Catatonic, hebephrenic, paranoid, and simple. The diagnostic criteria for this additional category were so vague that it could be applicable to virtually any person not suffering from mental function impairment and having interests beyond survival needs. This diagnosis was often applied to dissidents who were not in fact mentally ill so that they could be forcibly hospitalized in mental institutions and subjected to different treatments including powerful anti-depressants and electroconvulsive therapy. ...more on Wikipedia about "Sluggishly progressing schizophrenia"
