Meaning of Hysteria
Hysteria, in its colloquial use, describes unmanageable emotional excesses. Generally, modern medical professionals have given up the use of "hysteria" as a diagnostic category, replacing it with more precisely defined categories such as somatization disorder. In 1980, the American Psychiatric Association officially changed the diagnosis of "hysterical neurosis, conversion type" , the most dangerous and effective type, to "conversion disorder". - See link


Hysteria in Spanish is Histeria
La histeria (del francés hystérie, y éste del griego ὑστέρα, «útero») es una afección psicológica que pertenece al grupo de las neurosis. Técnicamente, se denomina trastorno de conversión. - See link
