Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: We appreciate Dr. Pies’ interest in our paper and the opportunity to address the complex nosological issues raised in his letter.

The more restrictive definition requires the absence of insight; however, the less restrictive definition includes "prominent hallucinations that the individual realizes are hallucinatory experiences."
