Sutyazhny delirium was the subject of a special study Krafft-Ebing in 1888. Patients with this kind of nonsense being drawn into the expanded campaign of accusations and complaints against the authorities. Many similarities between these patients and paranoid-Sutyajnik who instigate a series of trials involved in countless trials, and during the hearing sometimes become angry and threaten judges. Baruk (1959) described the reformist delusions, which focuses on religious, philosophical or political topics. People with this nonsense constantly criticize society, and sometimes taking elaborate steps that can be enforced, especially if delirium is political. Some political assassins should belong to this group. Extremely important that the diagnosis was made on the basis of purely psychiatric data, and not for political reasons (see: Bloch, Chodoff 1981).
