Delusion has been defined in a variety ways and to date no consensus has been reached on either its nature or origins. Delusions are a multidimensional construct characterised by a number of components(dimensions), which may change across the various mental disorders. The pattern of change in dimensionsof delusional structure during mental disorders might provide the insight into the nature of the psychoticprocess. Several authors have developed rating scales with the aim to measure individual dimensions ofdelusional structure. Rating scales can help to decribe characteristics of a heterogeneous sample of delusions,to clarify differences between delusional and nondelusional states and to assess a degree of delusionality acrossa range of psychiatric disorders (Ref. 12).
