Abstract

Delusional parasitosis can occur as an isolated delusional syndrome, or it may be associated with an underlying psychiatric disorder or physical illness. The benefit of treatment with antipsychotics in the treatment of delusional parasitosis is well known. Because of their efficacy and side effects profile, atypical neuroleptics have been suggested as potential alternatives to classical neuroleptics. In the case presented, the positive experiences with the novel neuroleptic aripiprazole are described.
