Friday Factoid: Fregoli Syndrome

Katelyn Yunes, MS

WKPIC Doctoral Intern


Fregoli syndrome is a delusional belief that different people are actually the same person in disguise. The syndrome is often associated with persecutory delusions (Mojtabai, 1994). Fregoli Syndrome can also present with objects, places, and even one’s own mind inhabiting another’s body (Silva & Leong, 1991).
