We report four cases (three women, one man) having delusions of pregnancy seen over a four month period at a short - stay in-patient facility in a General Hospital Psychiatry Department. None had organic factors and all could be explained on the basis of psychological mechanisms. Delusions of pregnancy may not be as uncommon as was previously believed.
