METHOD PubMed, Embase, and PsycINFO were searched, and studies were selected that 1) identified patients with unipolar major depression, 2) made diagnoses of psychosis based on the presence of delusions or hallucinations, 3) characterized… 
MIIKA NIETOLA: The Risk Factors, Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes of Psychotic Depression
Major depression with psychotic features (psychotic depression, PD) is a severe mental disorder characterized by depression and psychotic symptoms. Despite grave symptoms and high mortality, PD has
Prevalence and clinical profiles of comorbid anxiety in first episode and drug naïve patients with major depressive disorder.
The study showed that the prevalence of comorbid anxiety in FEDN patients with MDD is very high and it was found that two clinical variables, suicide attempt and psychosis, are risk factors for comor bid anxiety inFEDn patients withMDD.

Changes in glial gene expression in the prefrontal cortex in relation to major depressive disorder, suicide and psychotic features.
