Clinical & demographic features were examined among subjects with delusional versus nondelusional major depressive disorder. 288 subjects were included. No differences were observed for gender, polarity of mood disorder, age of onset, duration of index episode, number of episodes, number of previous hospital admissions, frequency of illness episodes, & number of suicide attempts. Data suggest that the 2 groups do not differ substantially except for personality disorders. (57 refs.)
