Daughter-mother folie àdeux: immigration as a trigger for role reversal and the development of folie àdeux Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a case of folie à deux in immigrants, for whom the process of immigration changed the intrafamilial dependencies. Folie à deux only appeared in the previously dominant member once she became the dependent member. Follow-up showed resolution of the folie à deux with no change in the recent reversal of roles.
