Healthy Narcissism is when you love yourself for who you really are. Pathological narcissim is when you are in love with an image of yourself you cannot obtain. Everyone has traits from both, especially in western society where focus is on the individual.

Hmmm... 'Megalomania' is a word derived from Greek. 'Narcissism' is a word derived from the name of a Greek god. Other than that, probably not much... Megalomania is a thirst for fame, glory, spectacle, conquest, etc., and it requires supporting players and an audience. Narcissism is simply falling in love with oneself. Someone could be a narcissist while deprived of human company, but a megalomaniac would be out of business.

Apparently there is but be very careful because it is often stated that even the experts have trouble telling the difference between these two definitions and even between narcissism and narcissistic tendencies and the prognosis is different for each. My husband had NPD and everyone said that he couldn't get better but he did. After that there were those who said OH he really just had tendencies! I think that it is dangerous to try and diagnose someone as incurable when it is not so clear cut. My husband and I have the best marriage ever now.
