A false, fixed and firm belief of being pregnant despite factual evidence to the contrary is a delusion of pregnancy. This can occur in both men and women and is associated with many psychiatric and biological disorders. It should be differentiated from pseudocyesis, pseudopregnancy, simulated pregnancy and Couvade syndrome. We report a case of delusion of pregnancy in a woman with mental retardation.
