Abstract

The authors explored differences in the clinical characteristics of 17 male and 13 female patients experiencing their first admission for psychotic depression. Few differences were observed for most depressive and psychotic features, but fewer male than female patients reported fatigue, psychomotor agitation, and systematized and mood-incongruent delusions and more male patients reported feelings of worthlessness. Overall, the findings were consistent with those derived from samples of patients with chronic, nonpsychotic mental illness.
