Delusional misidentification syndromes bring fascinated filmmakers too psychiatrists alike. Afflicted individuals endure nether the fake belief that persons or things approximately them bring changed their identities or appearance. Classification schemes bring varied, exactly a full general outline includes:

from Table 1 (Ellis et al., 1994). Classification too description of the 4 main delusional misidentification syndromes (DMS).
