Am J Psychiatry. 1981 Nov;138(11):1506-8.

Madakasira S, Hall TB 3rd.


The authors describe what may be the first reported case of Capgras syndrome associate with, or precipitated by, myxedema. The patient’s mental status dramatically returned to normal with gradual thyroid replacement. The authors suggest that tests for organicity be done routinely on patients manifesting Capgras features.
