Author information

  • 1University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA.


Delusions of misidentification of the self involve radical misidentification of physical and/or psychological aspects of the self. These delusions have received limited attention from a phenomenological as well as from a forensic psychiatric perspective. In this article we present a series of four cases of dangerous delusional misidentification of the self and discuss important factors that may contribute to their dangerousness.
