Paranoid personality disorder has been richly and consistently
represented in the descriptive psychiatric literature. It was described
by Mayer, Koch, Kraepelin, Bleuler, Kretschmer, and Schneider under
such rubrics as the "pseudoquerulent type" and
the "fanatic psychopath" (Millon 1981).
This disorder has, however, received less attention in the psychoanalytic
literature than have many other personality disorders.
