  1. Delusional jealousy in Chinese elderly psychiatric patients.

    Article - En anglais

    Studies on the delusion of jealousy are scanty, especially in the elderly population.

    This study is a retrospective case note study investigating the prevalence of delusions of jealousy in an elderly psychiatric population in Hong Kong.

    A total of 349 patients were surveyed and five had delusions of jealousy.

    This gives an overall prevalence of 1.4%, which shows that delusions of jealousy in the elderly are more common than one would expect.

    There is a predominance among female patients, and the most common psychiatric diagnosis of these patients is delusional disorder. (J Geriatr Psychiatry Neurol 1995 ; 8 : 49-51).
