Mr. Smith, Catatonia Associated with Schizophrenia, Part 6 Echolalia

On a later day, the same man is sitting, better dressed and able to make eye contact with the interviewer. He is able to answer questions, but does so with echolalia, mimicking the interviewer’s speech. He has some tremor, possibly a side effect of medication.
