Abstract

The temporal association between stressful life events and the onset of psychiatric disorders necessitates clinical investigation. In acute and transient psychoses (ATPD) such stressors have been considered of sufficient significance to warrant inclusion in diagnostic codification classification. The diagnosis of ATPD was stable in women over 3 years, but not in men. Outcomes in ATPD were better than in schizophrenia and similar to affective psychosis. In non-affective psychoses, favourable outcomes were a function of gender and premorbid functioning rather than acute onset and early remission. The ICD–10 criteria for ATPDs identify a diagnostically unstable group of disorders. Acute onset and early remission do not independently predict favourable outcome over 3 years in first-episode psychosis. This study examines the extent to which stressful life Events play a triggering etiologic role in ATPD. Antipsychotics like atypical antipsychotics are show better therapeutic effect in this disorder.
