To reviewHunter, J.what we have covered so far, Chap. 2proposed a model of how psychosocial factors can activate myriad neurological, neuroendocrine, and endocrine response axes. Similarly, Chap. 2reviewed the physiological constituents of these stress axes in considerable detail. Chapter 5reviewed the link from stress arousal to disease by summarizing several noteworthy models constructed to elucidate how stress arousal can lead to disease and dysfunction, that is, mechanisms of pathogenesis that link causally stress arousal to target-organ pathology. The goal of this chapter is to review some of the most common clinical manifestations of excessive stress and, more specifically, to familiarize the reader with some of the most frequently encountered target-organ disorders believed to be related to excessive stress arousal.
