O’HIGGINS, Marcelo; GONZALEZ, Sandra  e  TORALES, Julio. Folie imposée in two twin sisters. Med. clín. soc. [online]. 2020, vol.4, n.2, pp.81-85. ISSN 2521-2281.

Folie imposée (induced delusional disorder) is a rare entity in clinical psychiatry. This is a case report of two twin sisters, who required hospitalization in a psychiatry service after the appearance of delusions of prejudice and mystical content that, after an adequate intervention and separation of the patient without a history of similar symptoms, recovered their previous functionality. Induced delusional disorder has different clinical subtypes that differ in how they initiate their effect in the induced person. The treatment involves pharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches as well as an important psychoeducation on the disease.

Palavras-chave : Folie imposée; Induced delusional disorder; Diagnosis; Treatment.
