According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V), short psychotic disorder is the sudden start of psychotic behavior that should last only around 1 month and is followed by complete remission with a chance of recurrence in the future. The factors that cause brief psychotic disorder (BPD) might be hereditary, neurological, or environmental. It was discovered that 0.05% of people had a BPD. Clinical symptoms include delusion, cognitive difficulties, hallucinations that alter perception, distorted speech, altered moods, altered behavior, and lack of insight. The diagnoses were made using the DSM-V and DSM-IV-TR categorization systems. Psychotherapy and pharmacological treatment are the mainstays of the treatment.
