Dr. Jerald Ratner answered

Specializes in Psychiatry

Hysterical and psychiatric terminology is equivalent to histrionic. This refers to overly dramatic and emotional people. The term hysterical psychoses has no equivalent in the psychiatric terminology; but indirectly may be referring to a mood disorder with psychosis.
