MISIDENTIFICATION SYNDROME

is a syndrome which results in the misidentification of oneself, other people, places and objects. There has also been cases where patients believe that familiar individuals have undergone a change to look or speak the way they do, when they haven't at all. Similar syndromes include Capgras Syndrome and Inter-Metamorphosis Syndrome.

MISIDENTIFICATION SYNDROME: "Misidentification syndrome is the consistent and persistent confusion of an object or individual for another who they are not but may still know and have a working knowledge of."
