Schizotypal is classified as a personality disorder in DSM but ICD classes it with 'schizophrenia, schizotypal and delusional disorders' as a non PD.It seems in short
schizophrenia is psychotic disorder
schizotypal is personality disorder
I dont know if schizotypal can have psychotic parts,
There seems to be some contradiction, I've also seen schizoaffective classed as a mood disorder as well as a psychotic disorder by some foreign classifications (U.S). as british psych will say it's a mood disorder with psychotic symptoms.Schizotypal is classified as a personality disorder in DSM but ICD classes it with 'schizophrenia, schizotypal and delusional disorders' as a non PD.
Psychosis can occur but it is less frequent and intense than in schizophrenia .
