abstract

  • Two female patients with longstanding bipolar affective disorder demonstrated de Clérambault's paradigm of erotomania during the euthymic phase of their illness. Although a diagnosis of schizophrenia or paranoid disorder is often given, a review of the literature shows that many cases have features of a major affective disorder, probably bipolar affective disorder and its spectrum.
