Cotard Syndrome is a rare disorder in which the sufferer believes that he/she is:
- missing internal organs
- not actually existing
It can be observed in those with schizophrenia, biploar disorder and is often associated with those suffering depression. Keep in mind that though it has relationships with these disorders, it is still a very rare disorder.
Treatment includes treating the underlying disorder (such as schizophrenia).
Hmm. In writing, Cotard Syndrome would bring a whole other dimension to the zombie trends out there, wouldn't it?
