Toward a Neurobiology of Delusions
Upon discharge, Mr. Discussion: This case highlights the need to better understand the co-occurrence of CD in schizophrenia, their differentiation, the increased risk of violence and self-harm behavior in this presentation, and how specific events and religious factors can influence delusional themes of CD. Pharmacotherapy and aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy may be effective in ameliorating these symptoms in CD.
There are no standardized treatments for CD, although, case reports have documented effectiveness of pharmacological treatment as well as electro-convulsive treatment Debruyne et al.
Combination paliperidone and lorazepam has been successful in the context of schizophrenia Morgado et al. Recent reports have also brought attention to the role cognitive-behavioral therapy CBT techniques for delusions may play in effective treatment Coltheart et al.
Given the unique content of beliefs in CD, additional research to understand the important role life circumstances — including religious beliefs — play in the development and maintenance of this condition is needed Ghaffari Nejad et al.
Importantly, his sister indicated that Mr. C suffered his first psychiatric break during adolescence.
He was prescribed medication, but his parents, who indicated their preference for treating his condition with prayer, refused these. He has been living with his sister for the past 20 years and participates in all activities of daily living.
He is a widower and is currently unemployed. His TBI history includes a single episode approximately 25 years ago when he fell off a moving train, requiring extended hospitalization. The patient did not show any signs consistent with a chronic mood disorder or other psychosis.
However, she clearly expressed her fear of having the same fate as her mother at the same age, and the fear of having a disfigured face. Although there have been no controlled clinical trials, there is significant evidence for effectiveness of second-generation antipsychotics in the treatment of this syndrome, eg, risperidone, 12 — 15 aripiprazole, 13 and blonanserin 3 in the treatment of delusional infestation.
We chose aripiprazole because of its mechanism of action and its good clinical tolerance profile.
Indeed, aripiprazole has a unique pharmacological effect on the dopamine neurotransmission system partial agonist at dopamine D2 and D3 receptors. An fMRI was performed before and after the treatment period. We obtained written informed consent from the patient prior to performing any procedures.
Moreover, written informed consent was obtained from the patient for publication of this case report. A copy of the written consent is available for review by the editor of this journal. After 2 months of aripiprazole treatment, no side effects were noted and the patient stated that most of her vesicles had disappeared.
A follow-up psychiatric evaluation confirmed marked generalized clinical improvement. When comparing pre- and post-treatment imaging, the supplementary motor area SMA was significantly more activated for all the mental facial imagery tasks Figure 1.
Upon recovery, other regions of brain activity were observed, which corresponded to the abnormal pre-treatment hypoactivation. Figure 1 Antipsychotic treatment effects during own face mental imagery task.
Discussion Our results highlight the efficacy and safety of aripiprazole in the treatment of delusional infestation and the possible role of SMA dysfunction in delusional infestation.

Prior to treatment, the SMA was the only region that was significantly more active. Following treatment, we found a marked decrease in the activation of this area; this result was attributed to the dysfunction in the region of the SMA during delusional infestation. An alteration of the SMA may adversely affect how we perceive and adapt to our surroundings. In a previous study, Saugstad highlighted the role of the SMA in psychosis, 16 suggesting that psychosis is due to an abnormally functioning SMA; in such cases, there is relatively decreased function of the excitatory synapses, which creates silent spots in the region of the SMA.
The varying localizations of these silent spots may explain the great variability in schizophrenia. Our results suggest that SMA dysfunction may be implicated in this case of delusional infestation.
Although the mechanism regarding the modification of SMA activity remains unclear, functional readjustment in this area may contribute to the improvement of clinical symptoms. Future studies should investigate different therapeutic techniques, including the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on the SMA in the treatment of delusional infestation.
After recovery, different areas of the brain were found to be significantly more activated than during the delusional episode: the cerebellum, which is known for its role in attention and mental imagery, the fusiform in body recognition, and the precuneus in reference to the self 17 , 18 and somatization. Despite the difficulty of interpreting these results, functional modifications in such regions cannot be ignored due to their association with psychotic disorders such as altered feelings of self and body incarnation.
In conclusion, this case report confirms the efficacy and safety of using aripiprazole in treating delusional infestation. Thus, aripiprazole works as a dopamine stabilizer, reducing dopamine activity in dopaminergic systems where the neurotransmitter levels are high, and raising dopamine activity in dopaminergic systems where the neurotransmitter levels are low.

Moreover, the occupancy rate appeared comparable to the occupancy rate that has been established for treating schizophrenia.There are no reviews yet. She consulted several general practitioners, dermatologists, and microbiologists but avoided psychiatrists.

The overriding criteria for publication are originality, a high scientific quality and interest to a wide audience of those concerned with all aspects of mental illness.
