Abstract: 
Capgras syndrome is one of the misidentification syndromes. In this phenomenon the patient has a delusional belief that familiar persons have been replaced by imposters. We report a middle aged schizophrenic female who believed that the lower half of her body has been replaced by that of another person, known as prostitute by the patient. She also reported hallucination of sexual intercourse. Rare variants of Capgras syndromes have been reported so far, but there is no report of delusion of half of body replacement. The mentioned case can be considered as incomplete Capgras syndrome that is another variant of this syndrome.
