Abstract

Using cross-sectional evaluations 40 years after index admissions, the authors compared depressed patients with mood-congruent and those with mood-incongruent psychotic features. These patients were then compared with patients with nonpsychotic major depression, schizophreniform disorder, or schizophrenia. Outcome in the mood-congruent group resembled that in the nonpsychotic group and was significantly better than that in the mood-incongruent group. Patients in this latter group, however, had significantly better follow-up scores than did schizophrenic patients. These findings are consistent with a short-term outcome and family history study and suggest that patients with major depression and mood-incongruent psychotic features constitute a more diagnostically heterogeneous group than do those with mood-congruent psychotic features.
