It was a strange coincidence that this event took place less than two years after the first reports on insulin coma treatment (ICT) appeared. It was based on the belief that schizophrenia and epilepsy do not occur together and, thus, may be antagonistic to each other. It was, furthermore, based on old clinical observations that psychotic syndromes may temporarily disappear after spontaneous convulsions. The same considerations which led Meduna to the induction of actual convulsions had led another Hungarian, Nyiro (1937), to attempts at treating schizophrenia with blood from epileptics.
