‘INTERNET DELUSION’ RESPONSIVE TO COGNITIVE THERAPY

Abstract

Delusions are known to be influenced by the popular media, the sociopolitical undercurrents and also by the scientific innovations.

We describe a patient with paranoid schizophrenia who developed a delusion about the Internet controlling him but showed a good response to cognitive therapy.

Keywords: Internet, delusions, cognitive therapy
