Abstract

The coexistent appearance of delusions of pregnancy and infestation is reported in a male patient with posttraumatic epilepsy. While published organic cases of delusions of pregnancy have involved patients with severe or mild mental retardation, our reported patient had a higher than average IQ. The interpretative role of these delusions in a probable perceptual symptomatology cannot be excluded, as both delusions can be based on sensations in the abdomen or on the skin.
