Delusional jealousy is an important subject for forensic psychiatry because of its well-known association with violence, especially as directed toward spouses. In this article, we report a study of 20 individuals who suffered from delusional jealousy. Important biopsychosocial parameters, the relation between jealousy and aggression, and directions for future study are explored.
