Özet

Objective: Although psychotic depression is very common among old depressed patients, studies have generally failed to find any socio-demographic differences between psychotic depressed patients and non-psychotic patients. Comparison of the age related factors in psychotic depression and non-psychotic depression patients could contribute to a better understanding of the clinical features of psychotic depression and its management.
