Delusional Parasitosis and Folie deux: A Case Report About Aripiprazole Treatment

Serap Akdeniz Grgl.

Abstract
Introduction: Delusional parasitosis is a rare psychiatric disorder in which contrary to medical evidences, individuals persist in a false and fixed belief that they are infested with parasites. Folie deux is a psychotic spectrum disorder in which individuals having a close relationship share a similar delusional system. In the treatment of these disorders which typically involve delayed access to treatment and difficulty in obtaining treatment compliance, atypical antipsychotics are reported as the primary alternatives.
Case Report: Two family members who were diagnosed with delusional parasitosis and benefited from an Aripiprazole treatment were presented.
Conclusion: Our knowledge about treatment is often limited to case reports. In this case report, it was intended to discuss the treatment and follow-up process for delusional parasitosis.

Key words: Delusional Parasitosis, Folie deux, Aripiprazole
