dc.description.abstractDe Clerambault's syndrome or erotomania is a condition in which a patient, usually a woman, develops a delusional belief that a man, usually older and of higher social status, is in love with her. This paper describes such cases where medical practitioners were involved. In a case where a doctor was brought to court, the judge stressed that because of the nature of the allegation, it was vital that there be corroborative evidence. When faced with such patients, a prudent doctor would ensure that a nurse be in attendance at all times, that notes be carefully kept and phone calls recorded. Other measures might be necessary, depending on the situation.
