My eyelids are aching, but I decide to read the last article in the pile before returning to bed.

Interictal Psychosis Presenting With Fregoli Syndrome

Harpreet S. Duggal, M.D., D.P.M., Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, Pittsburg, PA

Interictal psychosis in patients with epilepsy is highly correlated with temporal lobe epilepsy. A 30-year-old woman was admitted with first break psychosis of acute onset characterized by disorganized behavior, loosening of association, auditory hallucinations, and persecutory delusions.

The patient had no prior psychiatric history and family history was noncontributory.

Other conditions associated with Fregoli syndrome include stroke, head injury and Alzheimer’s dementia.
