Excerpt

On the basis of an amalgamation of several reports including a review by Davison and Bagley (1969), Zhang and Sachdev (2003) suggested the following profile for individuals with posttraumatic psychosis. Patients with posttraumatic psychosis are typically young male (but see caveats above in discussion of gender as a risk factor); there are typically prodromal symptoms (e.g., functional deterioration and incongruent, atypical mood and behavior); and delusions (usually paranoid) and hallucinations are the predominant psychotic phenomenology (Fujii and Ahmed 2002; Sachdev et al. 2001). Others have also reported that paranoia and delusions are reported to be common elements in post-TBI psychosis (Cutting 1987).
