Puerilism (Latin puer – the child, puerilis – children's) (Dupre E., 1903) - the form of hysterical psychoses which is characterized by childishness of behavior against the background of hysterical narrowed consciousness.
The puerilism is characterized by transition of mental activity to children's level — the diseased as if sink into dotage. They begin to speak by a children's voice, to burr, lisp, distort words, to be capricious, to take offense, knock easily legs, to imitate childish sports. People around call "uncles" and "aunties".
Separate lines of a puerilism, than complete puerile syndrome meet more often (Vvedensky I. N., 1944; Turova Z. G., 1954). Usually P.'s impregnations are noted at a ganzerovsky syndrome, a pseudodementia (a psevdodementno-puerile syndrome).
