FORTES ALVAREZ, José Luis et al. A case report: Doctor, you know, this is a game. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.4, pp.703-715. ISSN 2340-2733.

We will discuss in the present article a very interesting case. This is a patient of 32 years old with a peculiar premorbid personality, who at least during his two previous psychiatric admissions has developed an intriguing psychopatology and behavior disorder; these aspects, his biography and the way he related with staff members and other patients make us think it can arouse curiosity among readers as well it did among staff members of the Psychiatry Department at Hospital Provincial of Toledo. We thought of 2 possible diagnosis, Dissociative Disorder versus Malingering but we think the second one fits better in a box of Acute Polymorphic Psychotic Disorder without symptoms of Schizophrenia(1).

Keywords : Dissociative Disorder; Brief Psychotic Disorder; Schizophreniform Disorder; Acute Polymorphic Psychotic Disorder without symptoms of Schizophrenia; Bouffee Delirant; Cycloid Psychosis.
