Abstract

A wide range of nonpsychiatric medical conditions can cause delusions. We present a 62-year-man with pruritus due to obstructive jaundice, who developed delusions of parasitosis, which he considered to be the reason for his pruritus++. The holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment of this combined disorder is important.
