Resumen

DIPP VARGAS, Carlos; SALGUEDO SILES, Samadhi Fernando; MENDOZA LOPEZ VIDELA, Jhosep Nilss  y  BURGOA SEAONE, Martina. DILUSIONAL PARASITOSIS OR EKBOM SYNDROME. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 46-49. ISSN 1726-8958.

Ekbom's syndrome also called Delusional Parasitosis is a rare mental disorder in which patients have a false and fixedidea of being infested by parasites or inanimate materials. A case of a 54-year-old man with a chronic condition compatible with this syndrome is reported. Initially, a good response to typical antipsychotic was highlighted, however it got complicated by a tardive dyskinesia due to extrapyramidal symptoms. Consequently, change of treatment with risperidone resulted in good response.

Palabras clave : Ekbom syndrome; Delusional Parasitosis; delusional infestation.
