AbstractDelusional disorders are not uncommon psychotic disorders, yet they are not readily recognised by doctors. There are different types of delusional disorder, some of which are centered on issues of love, hate, obsession, persecution or physical illness. These patients sometimes present to non-psychiatrists and have no insight into their problems. Occasionally, aggressive acting out behaviour, including homicide and suicide, can be frightening. Although treatment is difficult, many do respond well to anti-psychotic medications.
