The delusional parasitosis is also called EKBOM SYNDROME. Morgellon's Disease is the disease involving skin only i.e. patient feels that his skin is infested with bugs. But in EKBOM SYNDROME, any part of the body can be infested with parasites.
A diagnosis has to be established 1. Delusional disorder 2. Schizophrenia 3. Psychotic depression. Risperidone and aripiprazole have yielded good results for me. Thank u for sharing the info
Thanks Dr Garda ..

This condition is called Ekbom syndrome. Though literature says Pimozide is first choice but I get excellent results with Olanzepine and for few days clonazepam
Persistant delusion disorder ...give him olanzapine 20 mg n ECT 7 to 10...will be improved 80 yo 90 % I have treated such type cases in Aiims new delhi
