Is Delusional Disorder part of the Schizophrenia Spectrum? My psychiatrist said that I have Delusional Disorder with mania and depressive episodes. But I also had hallucinations related to my mixed delusions as well.

Delusional Disorder is a psychotic disorder like schizophrenia. The DSM states that Delusional Disorder can involve hallucinations if the hallucinations are related to the delusion.
