What is the diagnosis?

timer Asked: Nov 20th, 2015

Question description

A woman comes to you for an
initial interview. There is no history of drug or alcohol issues. There are no
indications of hallucinations or delusions which would indicate a
psychosis.  She seems confused and gives
wrong answers to simple obvious questions such as, “How many legs does a dog
have?”  Her answer was 5.  What is your diagnosis and why?  Is there any further information you may need
to make your diagnosis?
