Theories of Delusional Disorders : An Update and review


Kunert, H J; Norra, C; Hoff, Paul (2007). Theories of Delusional Disorders : An Update and review. Psychopathology, 40(3):191-202.

Abstract

Delusional syndromes can occur in a number of psychiatric, neurological or other disorders. They can also be caused by neurotoxic agents (e.g., heavy metals) as well as substance addiction. There are several hypotheses on the underlying cognitive or emotional processes associated with organic factors of delusional disorders, depending on the patient groups examined and the methods used. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review and critical assessment of the various, rather heterogeneous theories in this field.
