March 2014. Jan Dirk Blom published an article in the academic journal History of Psychiatry. Blom's article "When doctors cry wolf: a systematic review of the literature on clinical lycanthropy" looks at 56 cases of clinical lycanthropy or zoanthropy from 1850 to present. These are psychiatric cases in which people believed that they were animals, or were becoming other creatures. A popular source, LiveScience, offers a summary of Blom's article.
