Delusional disorder, once termed paranoia, was an important diagnosis in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and only in 1987 was it reintroduced into modern psychiatric diagnosis after being subsumed with schizophrenia. This book provides a comprehensive review of delusional disorder for psychiatrists and other clinicians. Beginning with the emergence of the concept of delusional disorder, the book goes on to detail its manifold presentations, differential diagnosis and treatment. Many instructive case histories are provided, illustrating manifestations of the various subtypes of delusional disorder, and related conditions in the paranoid spectrum. This is the most wide-ranging and authoritative text on the subject to have appeared for many years, and the first to suggest, based on the author's extensive experience, that the category of delusional disorder should contain not one but several conditions. It also emphasizes that, contrary to traditional belief, delusional disorder is a treatable illness.

This second edition of Seminars in General Adult Psychiatry provides a highly readable and comprehensive account of modern adult psychiatry. More than nine years have passed since the publication of the first edition, and significant advances have been made in almost every area of psychiatry. This single volume assimilates these modern developments and their effects on clinical practice. To achieve this has meant incorporating more than 4000 references, with many of the more important studies being described in some detail so as to provide the reader with some of the original data on which modern evidence-based medicine depends. Key features of the first edition that have been retained are the detailed clinical descriptions of psychiatric disorders, and historical sections to give the reader access to the classic studies of psychiatry as well as the current evidence. Additional topics covered here for the first time include liaison psychiatry, psychosexual medicine, clinical epidemiology, and international and cultural psychiatry. Clinical management is given due prominence, with extensive accounts of modern drug management, cognitive therapy, the main psychosocial approaches, and current guidelines such as those published by NICE. An essential text for trainees studying for their MRCPsych, this book is also a one-stop reference work for established practitioners. Comprehensive coverage of the whole of adult psychiatry. Detailed clinical descriptions of both common and rare psychiatric disorders. Accounts of the history, epidemiology, diagnosis and clinical management of all the broad categories of disorder. An evidence-based approach. New chapters on liaison psychiatry, clinical epidemiology, psychosexual medicine, and international and cultural psychiatry. Easy to read, with more than 260 tables and boxes summarising key information. New compact, single-volume format.

This work is a collection of Carl Wenicke’s lectures on neuropsychiatry translated into English for the first time. Beginning with basic concepts about normal brain function, the book moves to clinical topics, dealing first with chronic mental disorders and 'paranoid states', and then to the more complex area of acute mental disorders. Many of the featured topics are still clinically relevant, and matters of contemporary debate. Carl Wernicke is one of the pioneers of neurology and psychiatry; clinicians, researchers and historians will find this of great interest.

Warum flackert das Gaslicht zu später Stunde? Warum verschwinden Gegenstände und warum tauchen sie plötzlich wieder auf? Bella Manningham könnte wahnsinnig werden und fürchtet sich auch davor, denn schon ihre Mutter litt an einer Nervenkrankheit und musste in die Anstalt. Trifft sie dasselbe Schicksal? Da steht plötzlich ein Mann in ihrer Wohnung, der behauptet, sie vor ihrem Ehemann schützen zu wollen. Er sei ein pensionierter Scotland Yard-Kommisssar namens Rough und noch immer auf der Suche nach einem flüchtigen Mörder. Hier, an dieser Stelle in ihrem Zimmer, in diesem Sessel sei vor vielen Jahren eine alte Frau ermordet worden, aber der Mörder habe damals nicht gefunden, was er suchte, daher kehre er an den Ort des Schreckens zurück... Wer ist dieser Mann? Wer ist der Mörder? Wem darf sie trauen? Bella ist der Verzweiflung nahe. Und wieder flackert das Gaslicht. "Gaslicht" wurde 1943 unter dem Titel "Das Haus der Lady Alquist" von George Cukor verfilmt. In den Hauptrollen: Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer und Joseph Cotten. Das Theaterstück "Gaslicht" wurde 1938 uraufgeführt.
