The central characteristic of the delusional misidentification syndromes is a delusion of personal misidentification of the self or of others. Other symptoms of psychopathology in addition to delusional misidentification may be important contributors to the misidentification of people. In this article we report the case of a man who suffered from the syndrome of subjective doubles, reverse subjective doubles associated with a psychotic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. The contribution of his psychiatric disorders in the genesis of delusional misidentification is explored. Capgras Syndrome was also present.
