"Neuroleptic deficiency syndrome."
I'm currently reading Ben Elton's "The First Casualty".

In the book, he refers to a "NYDN centre", saying it is/was a Royal Army Medical Corps acromym, and that the Army didn't like the term "shell shock".

I am wondering if the acronym "NYDN" for "Not Yet Diagnosed - Nervous" is fictitious?

EDIT: A Google search seems to indicate it is an authentic acronym.
