Individuals often have comorbid elements of several disorders, and the psychotic phenomenon are often diverse. The psychotic manifestations of alcohol withdrawal, delirium tremens, alcohol hallucinosis, Wernicke’s-Korsakoff’s psychosis, alcohol pellagra and hepatic encephalopathy, Marchiafava-Bignami, central pontine myelinosis, and alcohol dementia are discussed in this article.
