It is not easy or quick to establish a differential diagnosis of Personality Disorders with specific psychiatric diseases. Detecting this alteration in medical practice is of utmost importance. In most patients the abnormal features become apparent as early as childhood and adolescence, and remain hidden or ignored until adulthood. Personality traits are considered abnormal only to the extent that they are conflicting for the subject or society. Undoubtedly, the most frequent additional diagnosis in subjects with personality disorders is depression (or affective disorders). An important trend in current psychopathological research is the description of Personality Disorders in terms that allow for a reliable differential diagnosis.

The term schizophrenia was introduced by Bleuler in 1911, who considered it more appropriate to emphasize the splitting that occurs in the association of ideas, emotions and contact with reality and social life. Today schizophrenia is still one of the greatest challenges of science, affecting, as is well known, about 1% of the population. Much progress has been made in the knowledge of this disease (or diseases), but if we analyze what is currently known and what is ignored, we could conclude that we know more and more, but we continue to ignore many of the enigmas of this or these diseases.

It is clear that the predominant symptom in these chronic patients is impaired social performance. Therefore, psychosocial care of schizophrenic patients is of fundamental importance, since most of them have to learn or relearn social and personal skills in order to survive in the community. Neuroleptics cannot teach the patient to develop vital and defensive resources nor can they improve a person's quality of life, except indirectly through their effect on cognitive disorganization and suppression of positive symptoms.

There is still a huge gap between our knowledge of certain mental illnesses and our knowledge of personality disorders. That is so, in part, because these appear to be quantitative rather than qualitative variants of the person. However, some personality disorders classically considered to be character-dependent (e.g., depressive, anxious, etc.) have actually been shown to be subsyndromal forms of specific diseases. Most patients tend to show behaviors (and problems) suggestive of a personality disorder, which may make the clinician forget syndromes unrelated to personality.
