The authors report a case of Frégoli delusion, where the development of the symptom was rooted in the misidentified person's sexual behaviour. They interpret their case in the light of recent results of face recognition. They demonstrate, that in psychosis the person identity nodes stage can be continuously deranged by the misidentified person's sexual behaviour.
