Jules Cotard (1840-1889): his life and the unique syndrome which bears his name.Pearn J, Gardner-Thorpe C.Royal Children's Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.Dr. Jules Cotard (1840-1889) was a Parisian neurologist who first described the delire des negations. Cotard's syndrome or Cotard's delusion comprises any one of a series of delusions ranging from the fixed and unshakable belief that one has lost organs, blood, or body parts to believing that one has lost one's soul or is dead. In its most profound form, the delusion takes the form of a professed belief that one does not exist.
