This paper reviews the conceptual history of brief and acute psychoses. As psychotic disorders of usually dramatic symptomatology but nevertheless with a usually benign course, brief and acute psychoses have the air of a paradox. Thus, they have posed specific problems in regard to nosology, diagnostics and aetiology. Despite a strong convergence of the descriptive elements, the historical concepts of brief and acute psychoses have yielded different answers to the questions raised. Kahlbaum and… Expand
Nonaffective Acute Psychoses: Uncertainties on the Way to DSM-V and ICD-11
TLDR
This work believes that most cases of these psychoses could be captured under a broad, unified category of nonaffective psychosis with acute onset and brief duration, and urges the authors of the upcoming revisions of the DSM and ICD to create such a category. Expand
Acute and Transient Psychoses
Brief and acute psychotic disorders with a short duration and a generally good prognosis have long intrigued psychiatrists. Although they are included in internationally accepted diagnostic systems,Expand
Is the psychopathology of acute and transient psychotic disorder different from schizophrenic and schizoaffective disorders?
Abstract Objective This study explores psychopathological aspects of acute and transient psychotic disorders (ATPD), a diagnostic category introduced with ICD-10, to elucidate its relationship withExpand
Cycloid Psychoses Revisited: Case Reports, Literature Review, and Commentary
TLDR
Two cases of probable cycloid psychosis are presented, the history of the concept is reviewed, and it is proposed that it be reconsidered as a clinically useful category whose validity and utility for prognosis and treatment can be further tested. Expand
Nonschizophrenic Psychotic Disorders: The Case of Cycloid Psychoses
TLDR
This study demonstrates that cycloid psychoses can be identified with the proper diagnostic instruments in a proportion that is also found in other studies. Expand
Bouffée Délirante and ICD-10 Acute and Transient Psychoses: A Comparative Study
TLDR
There are indications that a diagnosis of bouffée délirante carries a somewhat better prognosis than ATPD in general, however, the low frequency of operationally diagnosed bouffee dé lirante suggests that the criteria might be too narrow. Expand
Features of acute and transient psychotic disorders
TLDR
The present data support a delineation of ATPD as a diagnostic category with specific clinical features and with a usually favourable prognosis, and not a sharply demarcated and unchanging nosological entity. Expand
Prognosis of Brief Psychotic Episodes: A Meta-analysis.
TLDR
There is consistent meta-analytical evidence for better long-term prognosis of brief psychotic episodes compared with remitted first-episode schizophrenia and there was no prognostic difference in risk of psychotic recurrence between ATPD, BPD, BLIPS, and BIPS at any follow-up. Expand
Personality and Social Interactions in Patients with Acute Brief Psychoses
TLDR
It is indicated that patients with ATPD do not share the premorbid social impairment characteristic of schizophrenic patients and the personality of patients with AtPD does not differ substantially from the general population. Expand
LONG TERM OUTCOMES OF ACUTE AND TRANSIENT PSYCHOTIC DISORDERS : THE MISSED OPPORTUNITY OF PREVENTATIVE INTERVENTIONS
Background: Acute and transient psychotic disorders (ATPD) are characterized by an acute onset and a remitting course, and overlap with subgroups of the clinical high-risk state for psychosis. TheExpand

Reactive Psychoses Revisited
  • G. Ungvari, P. Mullen
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Australian and New Zealand journal of psychiatry
  • 2000
TLDR
The increasing failure to recognise reactive psychoses diminishes clinical psychiatry because it removes an important opportunity for understanding mental disorder in terms of an integration of developmental history, psychological makeup, social context and current realities, and in so doing lessens the awareness of the links between psychosis and the authors' common humanity.

The concept of ‘atypical psychoses’: Special reference to its development in Japan
  • N. Hatotani
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
In Japan it is generally considered that atypical psychoses are independent of ‘typical’ major psychoses and are located nosologically in the border area between typical schizophrenia, MDP and epilepsy. Expand
Epidemiology, diagnosis, and course of brief psychoses.
TLDR
Acute brief psychoses emerged as a highly distinctive and temporally stable form of psychosis that may merit a separate diagnostic classification. Expand
Concordance of Acute and Transient Psychoses and Cycloid Psychoses
TLDR
As expected, abrupt onset and polymorphic features were significantly more common in cycloid than in non- cycloid ATPD, and at follow-up, patients with cycloids ATPD showed less persistent alterations and better social functioning. Expand
Atypical Psychoses * : A Search for Certainty in this Ambiguous Borderland
TLDR
It has been sufficiently proven that the absence of mental deterioration does not warrant an automatic diagnosis of periodic or affective psychosis, and the criterion of progressive and inevitable psychic deterioration was so. Expand
Cycloid Psychoses: Diagnosis and Heuristic Value
TLDR
There is some evidence to suggest a relationship between cycloid and manic-depressive disorders, including the beneficial effect of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and lithium in both the cycloid patients and the bipolar affective disorder patients. Expand
Onset of acute psychotic states in India: a study of sociodemographic, seasonal and biological factors
TLDR
It was found that the acute remitting psychoses showed an overrepresentation of females, a higher frequency of associated stress preceding the onset of psychosis, more often had onset during the summer months, i.e. between May and September, and had fever and childbirth preceding the start of psychosis in a significantly higher proportion of patients, compared to acute non‐remitting Psychoses or schizophrenia.

The Remitting Atypical Psychoses: Clinical and Nosologic Considerations
TLDR
Case material reflecting a group of nonorganic psychoses which appear to have no obvious relationship to either schizophrenia or affective illness is presented here, and the nosologic status of these atypical psychoses is discussed. Expand
