This category includes all acute and chronic conditions due to non-syphilitic and non-encephalitic infections, such as meningitis and brain abscess. Many of these disorders will have been diagnosed as the acute form early in the course of the illness. If not of psychotic proportion, the disorder should be classified under Non-psychotic OBS with intracranial infection.


As of DSM-III, this disorder is no longer part of the DSM.
