MedLine Citation:
PMID:  11145459     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
By presenting two illustrative case histories, the authors stress the importance of the classical category of reactive psychosis which has disappeared from recent international classifications as a distinct nosological entity. Reactive psychosis is essential in the differential diagnosis of acute psychoses as the diagnosis of reactive psychosis has far-reaching therapeutic implications. Clinical and conceptual issues concerning reactive psychosis are briefly reviewed with respect to major classical and modern papers.
