Relationship between height and intelligence in oligophrenic patients

Ugeskrift for Laeger 143(8): 477-481
Relationship between height and intelligence in oligophrenic patients
The heights of 381 oligophrenic patients aged between 20-40 yr were measured. The material was subdivided according to sex and further subdivided into the intelligence groups: idiots, imbeciles and mild mental retardation. Patients with Down's syndrome (47) and patients [75] who were retarded without known reasons and with no other diagnoses except possibly a psychiatric diagnosis were grouped separately. Eskimos (21) from Greenland were registered separately. The data collected in this manner was assessed statistically. Oligophrenic patients have shorter statures than the normal population. This observation has been made by other authors. In addition, it was demonstrated that this also holds true for the abovementioned group of 75 oligophrenic patients, in contrast with the findings of some authors.
