Kanner’s infantile autism and Asperger’s syndrome -- Pearce 76 (2): 205 -- Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry

Recent much publicised attention to autism and its putative relation to the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccination reminds us that autism affects approximately 4 in 10 000 of the population. It is characterised by impairments in reciprocal social interaction and communication, restricted and stereotyped patterns of interests and activities, and the presence of developmental abnormalities by 3 years of age. Much of the psychiatric literature appears to overlook the organic basis,1 with subtle neurological signs evident in many examples: learning difficulties, a high incidence of epilepsy, viral infections, tuberous sclerosis, and fragile X syndrome are known associations.
