Abstract: Delusional Zoopathy is a disorder of perception alongside a delusion. Patients believe that there is an animal inside their body that they can feel moving inside. Delusional infestation, delusional parasitosis and Ekbom’s syndrome are the other names by which it is known. While existing literature reports the condition as a monosymptomatic disorder affecting mainly the skin or the intestines and involving mostly worms or smaller parasites. While both ICD-10 and DSM-5 categorize it under delusional disorders, delusional Zoopathy is yet to be categorized. Here we describe a rare case of delusional Zoopathy occurring secondary to schizophrenia.
