We present a case of a 56-year-old male who developed Capgras syndrome following hyponatremia consequent to dehydration. He was a previously healthy male who eventually developed secondary systematized delusions due to misidentification syndrome. This case highlights the need for evaluating the role of toxic/medical etiology in the causation of this syndrome that is more often encountered in schizophrenia.
