Delusional Jealousy (Othello Syndrome) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Delusional jealousy (aka the Othello syndrome) involves the delusion of infidelity of a spouse or partner. The Othello syndrome affects males and, less often, females and is characterized by recurrent accusations of infidelity, searches for evidence, repeated interrogation of the partner, tests of their partner's fidelity, and even sometime stalking. The syndrome may appear by itself or in the course of paranoid schizophrenia, alcoholism, or cocaine addiction. As in Othello, the play by Shakespeare, the syndrome can be highly dangerous and result in disruption of a marriage, homicide and/or suicide.
