Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Shared psychotic disorder (folie à deux) is an uncommon entity reported mainly in the context of delusions. Obsessions and compulsions occur very rarely as shared psychopathology.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

We present two sisters who manifested shared obsessive-compulsive disorder.

RESULTS:

Both sisters were managed in keeping with their shared obsessive-compulsive disorder leading onto a similar pattern of response.

CONCLUSIONS:

Shared obsessions could represent the continuum concept of obsessions and delusions, and their relationship needs to be evaluated in greater detail.
