Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bangalore, India.


Delusions of pregnancy in men have been reported rather infrequently. This case report is of a male schizophrenic patient who developed a delusion of pregnancy on two successive occasions each time when his wife became pregnant. The authors view briefly various aetiological hypotheses of delusions of pregnancy and whether the couvade phenomenon had any role in the origin of this delusion.
