Dealy and colleagues (1981; Dimes, 1981) in a replication study found that 33% of their group of anxious neurotics developed secondary depression. Sixty-four percent of those who developed depression had a history of panic attacks compared with 29% of those who did not develop depression. Dealy's conclusion was that secondary depression and anxiety neurosis resemble each other and are distinct from unipolar depressions in terms of family history. Many researchers, typified by Cleghorn (1970), have suggested that the separate anxiety and depressive neuroses be replaced by a single "anxiety-depression syndrome".
