Multiple serial lycanthropy. A case report.

Author information

  • 1St Crispin Hospital, Northampton, UK.

Abstract

A case is described who exhibited lycanthropy during an acute psychotic illness. During a short period she experienced herself as four different species of animal, an occurrence not previously reported. The phenomenon of lycanthropy is most appropriately regarded as a delusion, but the abnormal subjective experience is stressed, not just the falsely-held belief.
