DSM-II

This psychosis is distinguished by a depressive mood attributable to some experience. Ordinarily the individual has no history of repeated depressions or cyclothymic mood swings. The differentiation between this condition and Depressive neurosis depends on whether the reaction impairs reality testing or functional adequacy enough to be considered a psychosis.
