Frégoli syndrome accompanied with prosopagnosia in a woman with a 40-year history of schizophrenia.
TLDR
A 68-year-old woman with schizophrenia after a cerebrovascular accident resulting in right medial temporal and occipital damage developed Frégoli syndrome, which disappeared in three month when her prosopagnosia also disappeared.
Delusional misidentification.
TLDR
Although DMS is associated with a pattern of neuropsychologic impairments in the domains of memory, perception, and executive function, these impairments alone do not account for the selectivity and delusional nature of DMS.
Psychosis Following Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Despite controversies in the literature, psychosis following TBI appears to be three times more prevalent than psychotic disorders in the general population, and comparable in presentation to other idiopathic psychotic spectrum disorders, including schizophrenia.
A patient with the Fregoli syndrome: a case report and discussion of the relevant literature
TLDR
A case report of Fregoli syndrome is described and the relevant literature is discussed, showing a growing body of evidence that delusional misidentification syndromes, including F Regoli syndrome, have identifiable brain lesions largely related to the right hemisphere.
The cognitive neuropsychological profile of psychosis following traumatic brain injury (PFTBI): comparisons with traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia, and healthy control cohorts
TLDR
Patients who are dually-diagnosed with psychosis following traumatic brain injury and psychosis remains poorly understood and under-researched.

TLDR
PD-TBI data were highly consistent with previous studies: PD- TBI differed from schizophrenia in showing more focal frontal and temporal abnormalities on neurological studies and a lower rate of negative symptoms.
Delusional Misidentification Syndromes and Dementia
TLDR
The delusional misidentification syndromes are examined in people with dementia using the search terms “Delusional Misidentification Syndrome, Capgras syndrome, Fregoli syndrome, reduplicative paramnesia, and dementia.
Delusional Misidentification Syndromes in Patients of Paranoid Schizophrenia: Case Series and Review
TLDR
Five cases of Delusional Misidentification in the setting of paranoid schizophrenia, either as a single DMS or combination of various DMS, like Fregoli, Capgras, and Clonal pluralization are reported.
Neuroanatomical correlates of neuropsychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
The study of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease using voxel-based morphometry and other imaging modalities may further the understanding of the neural structures that mediate the genesis of abnormal behaviours.

Frégoli syndrome after cerebral infarction.
TLDR
A case of a rare form of delusional misidentification, the Frégoli syndrome, is described and a diagnosis of paranoia (delusional disorder) secondary to predominantly right hemisphere pathology, rather than schizophrenia, seemed more appropriate.
Delusional misidentification in association with parkinsonism.
TLDR
Three cases of DMS in patients with Parkinson's disease and dementia, treated with dopaminergic medications, are presented and it is postulated that DMS associated with parkinsonism results from a combination of dopaminaergic psychosis and cognitive dysfunction involving the frontal lobe in particular.
Capgras syndrome
TLDR
Neuropsychologic and neuroradiologic data in a patient recovering from a severe head injury revealed this combination, suggesting that the Capgras syndrome may be a form of reduplicative paramnesia with the same pathologic substrate.
A neuropsychological analysis of Capgras syndrome
TLDR
Longitudinal analyses revealed that E.B.'s delusion resolved in tandem with improved performance on tests of frontal network functions, and there was no accompanying change in the status of her amnesia.

TLDR
Four patients with environmental reduplication, a specific form of spatial disorientation and confabulation are described and each patients had evidence of right frontal or right parietal injury based upon computed tomography, neurosurgery, and neuropsychological testing.
Delusional misidentification syndromes.
TLDR
By stressing a symptom-based approach it is possible to examine psychiatric, neurological and medical cases as arising from the same underlying disturbance in cognition function.

TLDR
Patients with Fregoli syndrome showed more frontal and temporal lobe atrophy than controls and may be associated with dysfunction of these areas, according to computed tomography scans.
