CORRAL MARQUEZ, Rosana y TABARES SEISDEDOS, Rafael. A Psychopathological approach to "Don Quixote" (following the present psychiatric nosology). Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2003, n.85, pp.27-57. ISSN 0211-5735.
Psychopathology of Don Quixote is analysed and previous studies about the character are reviewed, from the medical as from the literary point of view. Seen from the current nososlogy perspective, Don Quixote would fullfil criteria for a Delusional Disorder and this is argumented on the base of the delusions genesis, synthomatology and delusions formal treats. Furthermore, the diagnose of Shared Psychotic Disorder is proposed for the main characters (Don Quixote and Sancho).
