Letter to the Editor
Sir: Despite the paucity of cases, dozens of papers have
been written on the uncommon diagnosis of folie à deux. Perhaps
one factor accounting for this interest is the rare inclusion
of more than one person in a diagnosis and the fact that
in all cases of folie à deux reviewed by the author, as well as
in DSM-IV, patients are universally defined as delusional
(shared psychotic disorder), often with bizarre content in the
delusions. No accounts of these patients with which the author
is familiar have included obsessive-compulsive disorder
or for that matter any other nonpsychotic diagnosis.
