  Shared psychotic disorder is a type of disorder in which two or more individuals develop a psychotic disorder. The primary case usually has a major psychotic disorder and other individuals (secondary case) who are passive and suggestible, accept the psychotic symptoms of primary case and become psychotic. This disorder is rare, and the previous references consist almost entirely of case reports. In this literature a case of shared psychotic disorder has been reported.

  A seventeen year old girl -Miss A - had a three year history of psychotic disorder. During observation from her family members it has been specified that her mother, sister and brother also had same psychotic symptoms, for example: persecutory delusion and auditory hallucination. This family had an isolation condition from society.

  Miss A’s family lives in isolation from social community. In these situations the family members are in exposure of a great number of psychiatric problems. As a principle of mental health policies the families must been encouraged to have relationship with other families in a moral and lawful basis.
