  1. paraphrenic schizophrenia

    Paraphrenic schizophrenia is a subtype of schizophrenia, a chronic mental disorder characterized by symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech and behavior. It is also frequently associated with persistent and dominant paranoid delusions and hallucinations, often of grandeur or persecution. Paraphrenic schizophrenia often develops later in life, typically appearing after the age of 40 or 50. However, it's important to note that this term is not widely used in modern psychiatric diagnosis. Currently, schizophrenia is usually categorized into three types: paranoid, disorganized, and catatonic.
