CONCLUSION: The overall clinical presentation when AVH occur in BPD can assist in determining a primary diagnosis of BPD when frank psychotic disorder is absent. AVH in BPD cannot be distinguished phenomenologically from AVH in SCZ. Clinical experience and increasing research suggest that AVH in BPD are often dissociative in origin and highly correlated with the presence of FRS, elevated levels of dissociation and a history of childhood trauma. When AVH occur in BPD in the absence of co-occurring psychotic disorder, formal thought disorder is usually absent, negative symptoms minimal or absent, bizarre symptoms absent, aff...

This study examined relationships between BPD symptoms and symptoms of bulimia nervosa (BN) and anorexia nervosa (AN), including whether the nine BPD symptoms differentially relate to BN versus AN.

BN and AN symptoms were greater among individuals who endorsed unstable relationships, affective instability, emptiness, identity disturbance, inappropriate anger, dissociation/paranoia, and suicidal behavior. BN, but not AN symptoms, were higher when impulsivi...
