Paranoia brings together three types of delusions: interpretive, sensitive, passionate. The latter themselves being divided into three different types: delirium of jealousy, delirium of prejudice and erotomania.
Typically, the person who suffers from paranoia is a man who consumes alcohol or other toxic substances.
The great risk of paranoia is the aggressive acting out of the person suspected of conspiracy. Depression is also a complication, especially in sensory delusions.
The treatment of paranoia is tricky. The challenge is to build patient confidence for your doctor or psychotherapist. Its effectiveness is variable, and depends on the type and intensity of delirium.The paranoid personality is another diagnostic entity, characterized by paranoid personality traits: excessive mistrust, impaired judgment, social maladjustment, and overestimation of self.
