Abstract

"Folie-à-deux", or induced delusional disorder, is a relatively rare psychiatric syndrome, considered a diagnostic challenge, in which psychotic symptoms are transferred by a patient primarily affected to one or more people, suggestible, and both have large proximity and a complex relationship of dependence. Mood disorders are uncommon as a primary patient diagnosis, with their description in the literature. In this report we present a case of "folie-à-deux", involving mother and daughter, initially evaluated by a general practitioner in emergency service, referenced to public service of mental health care and identified by a multiprofessional team in this service. The objective of the study is to discuss the unusual primary diagnosis, to expand the possibilities of treatment and emphasize the importance of primary care recognition. In this case the improvement of the clinical condition occurred without the separation of the involved ones and without use of pharmacotherapy, usually recommended in the treatment, but still evolving with an outcome favorable after multiprofessional team approaches
