¿ What is the Autoscopic Syndrome ?
Like the Capgras’s Syndrome, the Autoscopic Syndrome consists of the delusional experience of a double.
In the Autoscopic Syndrome, however, the double is not a person from the patient environment but the patient himself.
The patient claims to see a person nearby who looks exactly like himself, talks, dresses, and act as he does.
Autoscopic Syndrome may occurs in Schizophrenia and in some Neurological disease.
