A case of “subjective” Frégoli syndrome.
Drs. Silva and Leong
Department of Psychiatry, University of California.

In the classic type of Frégoli syndrome, the affected person believes that another person’s mind can inhibit the body of another person. We present an unusual presentation of Frégoli syndrome in which patient “F.” believed that copies of his own mind inhabited the bodies of others.

“F.” was arrested for disturbing the peace, and claimed his sister was not his own. He further believed that there were machines in jail and other places that could manufacture copies of minds of others, including his own.
