Kurita, Hiroshi; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v22 n2 p175-88 Jun 1992
Eighteen cases of disintegrative psychosis (DP) were compared with 52 cases of infantile autism (IA) with speech loss and 145 IA cases without speech loss. DP cases showed clearer regression after more satisfactory development than the IA cases with speech loss, and by age seven were more severely retarded but similar in autistic symptomatology to IA cases.
