Delusional Disorders

      • Erotomanic type: This subtype applies when the central theme of the delusion is that another person is in love with the individual.
      • Grandiose type: This subtype applies when the central theme of the delusion is the conviction of having some great (but unrecognized) talent or insight or having made some important discovery.
      • Jealous type: This subtype applies when the central theme of the individual’s delusion is that his or her spouse or lover is unfaithful.
      • Persecutory type: This subtype applies when the central theme of the delusion involves the individual’s belief that he or she is being conspired against, cheated, spied on, followed, poisoned or drugged, maliciously maligneed, harassed, or obstructed in the pursuit of long-term goals.
      • Somatic type: This subtype applies when the central theme of the delusion involves bodily functions or sensations.
      • Mixed type: This subtype applies when no one delusional theme predominates.
      • Unspecified type: This subtype applies when the dominant delusional belief cannot be clearly determined or is not described in the specific types (e.g., referential delusions without a prominent persecutory or grandiose component).
      • With bizarre content: Delusions are deemed bizarre if they are clearly implausible, not understandable, and not derived from ordinary life experiences (e.g., an individual’s belief that a stranger has removed his or her internal organs and replaced them with someone else’s organs without leaving any wounds or scars).
