Abstract

Somatoparaphrenia (SP) typically occurs after a right-hemisphere stroke, where the patient refers to his/her hemiplegic left hand as belonging to someone else. In this report, we review the literature for the brain structures affected in SP. We also report three cases with varying degrees of SP: a typical case, one case where SP affected the visceral sensations, and one case where a concurring psychiatric condition lead to a very complex, bizarre delusion.
