To the Editor: As a resident in neurology, and according to the syllabus approved by the Spanish Ministry of Health, I had to complete a 2-month rotation in psychiatry, which is a compulsory component of our residency program. The first day of this rotation I was assigned to the psychiatric inpatient ward. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the medical team (physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers) met and discussed the diagnosis, treatment, evolution, and prognosis of every patient. In one of my first meetings, the wide use of the term “organic” to refer to any disease with a nonpsychiatric origin surprised me. Suffering from gastroenteritis, a urinary tract infection, or a meningioma denoted suffering from an “organic” disease while being diagnosed with depression, anorexia nervosa, or conversion disorder meant having a “nonorganic” or psychiatric condition; this term also allowed the treatment team to clearly separate their responsibilities from those of nonpsychiatric medical professionals.
