In the history of psychiatry, the contents of delusions have always interested the community of mental health professionals. We came across a 65-year-old patient with a peculiar delusion of spitting pearls. This study purports to discuss, first, the late age of onset of the delusions in the absence of any cognitive deficits along with unique delusional content and, second, the possible role of environment in the formulation of delusional content.
