  • Delusional Jealousy (Othello Syndrome) in 67 Patients with Parkinson's Disease. [Review]
    Front Neurol 2018; 9:129Kataoka H, Sugie K
  • Othello syndrome (OS) is a type of paranoid delusional jealousy, characterized by the false absolute certainty of the infidelity of a partner. Because OS has infrequently occurred in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), the characteristics of OS in PD remain unclear. We reviewed the clinical characteristics of this syndrome in PD. We reviewed 67 patients who had PD with OS. OS was more common …

  • Non-bizarre delusion, defined as a false belief possible although highly unlikely, is the main manifestation of delusional disorders, previously known as paranoia.

    Tijdschr Psychiatr 2017; 59(5):302-305Potters EC, van Asseldonk JTH, Tilanus JJD

We describe the case of a female patient with Parkinson's disease who believed, erroneously, that her partner was being unfaithful; this type of delusion is also called the Othello syndrome. After psychoeducation and the start…
  • Othello syndrome after STN DBS - psychiatric side-effects of DBS and methods of dealing with them. [Case Reports]
    Psychiatr Pol 2016; 50(2):323-327Antosik-Wójcińska AZ, Święcicki Ł, … Sołtan E
  • CONCLUSIONS: In recent years, work is underway on the use of DBS in psychiatry, particularly in patients with treatment-resistant depression. It is necessary to set the strategy for dealing with side-effects of DBS. Most of the authors prefer the temporary or permanent switch off the stimulator. In the author's opinion, in some cases it is possible to effectively treat the psychotic symptoms without resignation from the benefits of stimulation. So far, however, such cases were described so rarely that it is difficult on this basis to formulate conclusions that can be applied to the whole population of patients treated with DBS. Only a systematic study including an assessment of psychotic symptoms using scales and analysing the received treatment and stimulation parameters could give an idea of what is the most appropriate strategy in case of psychosis following DBS.
