‘Clonal Pluralization of the Self’: A New Form of Delusional Misidentification Syndrome

Vörös V. · Tényi T. · Simon M. · Trixler M.
Department of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Pécs, Pécs, Hungary Psychopathology 2003;36:46–48 (DOI:10.1159/000069656)


The authors present a patient with paranoid schizophrenia, who has the delusion that he exists in plural numbers. The patient declares these doubles to be both psychologically and physically completely identical to him, and he believes ‘them’ to be in fact women. In connection with the case, the authors discuss the phenomena of reduplicative paramnesia and clonal pluralization, and they suggest introducing the psychopathological term ‘clonal pluralization of the self’ for the reported phenomenon.
