Abstract

Delusional Parasitosis
Author(s): El Hadji Seydou Mbaye

Delusional parasitosis (DP) is a psychological problem where people have an industrious conviction that they are invaded with living or nonliving microbes, for example, parasites, bugs, or bugs, when no such pervasion is available. They generally report material visualizations known as formication, a sensation looking like bugs slithering on or under the skin.
