    Abstract

    Delusional misidentification syndromes have intrigued this century's psychiatric researchers. More recently, the dangerousness posed by individuals suffering from these syndromes has been a subject of scientific inquiry. A series of five individuals suffering from delusional misidentification syndromes was studied from a phenomenologic and neuropsychologic perspective. Using this information, a hypothesis involving the psychobiological contributions to the dangerousness of delusional misidentification can be generated. This may further our understanding of the dangerousness posed by psychotic individuals.
