13.5.2  Signs and symptoms of chronic organic psychoses

Chronic organic psychoses are forms of psychosis arising from permanent physical and/or brain damage. A common feature of chronic organic psychosis is progressive loss of memory, usually combined with other, more general, psychotic symptoms. Loss of memory without psychotic features is called dementia (see Study Session 15 of this Module).
