This paper aims to evaluate the current and dynamic profile of a 19-year-old with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) with paranoid features. The case allows us to detect how the symptoms associated with BPD evolve on a background of poor management of potentially stressful events. There is a Borderline personality structure with obvious paranoid features, which pushes the patient into dysfunctional behaviors, aggressive acts and suicidal tendencies, the patient's instability, chaotic sexuality, addictive and self-harming behavior being observed. There are elements specific to an antisocial personality with narcissistic notes, which highlight impulsive and manipulative tendencies, accompanied by recurrent conflicts and delinquency. The clinical picture of axis II pathology is highlighted, an accentuated aspect being represented by the deficient defense mechanisms, which prevent the integration of the events in an adequate way. Considering the patient's self-destructive behaviors, impulsiveness, and multiple addictions, in the absence of appropriate treatment, psychotherapy, and/or pharmacological treatment, several future complications may occur, including risks of future problems with the law, self-destructive behaviors, and suicide attempts.
