Autocastration and biblical delusions in schizophrenia.

Abstract
A young male castrated himself in response to the biblical passage, Matthew 19:12. Although extremely rare, autocastration usually occurs in men with chronic paranoid schizophrenia, with a long history of delusions of sexual guilt which can only be relieved by castration. Management of these patients is long-term, involving both pharmacotherapy and individual and family therapy.
