Ekbom Syndrome is characterized by delusion that small living being infests skin. The clinical profile of this disorder has shown it to be associated with organic conditions. Neuroimaging studies implicate putamen as the brain structure involved in the pathophysiology. These are also known as organic delusional disorder and provide an opportunity to study biological causation of delusional disorder. We report a patient presented with a complaint of insects crawling on her body for last two years. She collected the peeled skin in a jar and claimed that these are insects. CT scan (brain) revealed multiple infarcts involving basal ganglia. She responded to Risperidone 4 mg daily.
