STROBBE-BARBAT, Mariella; MACEDO-ORREGO, Luis  and  CRUZADO, Lizardo. Reduplicative paramnesia: a propos of a case associated with schizophrenia. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2018, vol.81, n.3, pp.203-208. ISSN 0034-8597.

Delusional misidentification syndromes (DMS) are a relatively common group of disorders in clinical psychiatry, although the symptom known as Reduplicative Paramnesia (RP) has been, in most cases, attributed to organic (brain- related) causes. The case of a patient with diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia who developed RP is presented: he reported having two identical homes, one real and one false, the latter a copy of the former, but in which he could not breathe because of lack of air. A brief review of the literature revealed progress in the neurobiological explanation of RP, particularly related to evidences of organic cerebral pathology; nevertheless, a number of questions remain, requiring a more comprehensive conception of this symptom as a psychotic manifestation of schizophrenia.

Keywords : Schizophrenia; memory disorders; Capgras syndrome.
