symptom complex n.
A group of symptoms that occur together and are characteristic of a certain disease, disorder, or condition.
In fact this symptom complex has usually been regarded as occurring only in a malignant setting.
Taxonomic zeal began to blind vision when Kahlbaum formulated his "Catatonia" and included stupor in the symptom complex.
Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that this clinical group is founded on the symptom complex which is built around apathy.
Whenever there are many remedies for a symptom complex, it usually means that the suggestive element in all of them is large.
