asked May 17, 2014 in Psychiatry by Rajesh Bahara

A 65-year-old woman lives alone in a dilapidated house, al- though her family members have tried in vain to move her to a better dwelling. She wears odd and out- of-fashion clothes and rummages in the garbage cans of her neighbors to look for redeemable cans and bottles. She is very suspicious of her neighbors and makes the sign against the “evil eye” whenever she happens to meet one of them. She was convinced that her neighbors were plotting against her life for a brief time after she was mugged and thrown on the pavement by a teenager. What is the most likely diagnosis?

a. Autism

b. Schizophrenia, paranoid type

c. Schizotypal personality disorder
