Abstract

The Capgras syndrome in a 32-year-old woman is described. While showing some affective and schizophrenic features, the syndrome appears to have retained its purity over a period of eight years. A good remission has been maintained recently through the use of long-acting phenothiazines. Case material, including letters, is presented and a brief summary given of the historical origns of the syndrome.
