TIPSImportant Question from DNB 2015

 Answer: B. Schizotypal

Explanation :

Schizotypal Personality disorder:

 

  • Patients with schizotypal personality disorder behave in an odd and eccentric manner, are socially inept and isolated, and experience cognitive or perceptual distortions.
  • Their distortions include magical thinking, odd beliefs, ideas of reference, bodily illusions, or telepathic and clairvoyant experiences.
  • These beliefs and distortions are inconsistent with subcultural norms, occur frequently, and are an important and pervasive core component of the patient’s experience.
  • The patient’s enduring psychotic- like symptoms may worsen under stress.
  • Patients often dress in an odd and peculiar fashion and their affect is often inappropriate; for example, they may laugh inappropriately during the visit while talking about their problems.
  • These patients are socially isolated and usually have few or no close friends.
  • Their social isolation stems from their odd behavior as well as from their persistent social anxiety due to suspiciousness or paranoia toward others.
